Croatian-born violinist Bojan Čičić has established himself as one of the leading names on the early music scene, as both a soloist and music director.

In addition to being the leader of the Academy of Ancient Music, he directs ensembles including De Nederlandse Bachvereniging, Dunedin Consort, Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and Phion Orkest van Gelderland & Overijssel.

As a soloist he appeared with Academy of Ancient Music, Orchestra of the 18th-Century, Kioi Hall Chamber Orchestra Tokyo and Orquesta Barocca de Sevilla.

In 2016, Bojan was appointed Professor of Baroque Violin at the Royal College of Music.

His recent recording of JS Bach: Sonatas and Partitas was nominated for the Critic’s Choice 2023 in the Gramophone Magazine and Editor’s Choice in BBC Music Magazine.

We are privileged to have an artist of Bojan’s calibre to come and play for us at Dalswinton and hope you will take the opportunity to join us for what will be a most enjoyable evening.
