Kim Sjøgren

violin
1955
Kim Sjøgren (b.1955) became the Royal Danish Symphony Orchestra’s youngest ever concert master at the age of 22, and was there for 10 years. His studies, after his debut when he was only 17, took place in Boston with Joseph Silverstein, on the recommendation of Isaac Stern. Kim Sjøgren has toured the world both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. For many years he was also the leader of Copenhagen String Trio, with whom he did a number of recordings.

Since he was a child Kim Sjøgren was always interested in all kinds of music, and he still says today: “There are only two kinds of music: good and bad!“. This attitude has always reflected his choices both in his career and his repertoire. In 1997 he formed the chamber orchestra Little Mermaid Orchestra, and in 2005 he became violin Professor at the Royal Academy of Music in Århus. He is also a music entertainer, and works and records frequently with musicians from other genres.
