Katarina Andreasson is one of the leading Swedish violinists and concertmasters. She began her studies at the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen and then continued studying in Stockholm, Canada, New York and Prague. By the age of 22 she was already first concertmaster of the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra in Denmark, and in 1995 became first concertmaster at the Gothenburg Opera. Since 1997 she has served as first concertmaster of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, a position that has seen her also as a director of the ensemble, notably as director and soloist in Peteris Vask’s Violin Concerto. She widened her musical ability by studying conducting with Jorma Panula in Helsinki.

As a soloist Katarina Andreasson made her international début in London in 1997, when she performed Howard Blake’s Violin Concerto “The Leeds” at the Royal Festival Hall with the Philharmonia, to critical acclaim. As a chamber musician she has performed around the world and as a guest concertmaster she is in demand. From 1996 to 2001 she taught the violin at the Music College in Gothenburg. She is also a member of the popular Swedish string group Ladies Only, who released their first CD with Naxos in 2001, chosen as CD of the month in November of the same year.
