NIKLAS WILLEN

Niklas Willén is a regular guest conductor each season with major Scandinavian orchestras such as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and Iceland Symphony Orchestra. He became chief conductor of the Sønderjyllands Symphony Orchestra in Denmark, and has previously held positions as principal guest conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and as chief conductor of the Sundsvall Chamber Orchestra.

Niklas Willén has become a busy recording artist, making CDs with orchestras such as the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Royal Opera in Stockholm, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Malmö Opera, Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, Sundsvall Chamber Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland.

The finest Swedish conductor of his generation, he was born in Stockholm in 1961 and studied conducting and composition there at the Royal College of Music, his conducting teachers including Jorma Panula. The main focus of his career has been concentrated throughout Scandinavia and the Nordic countries with several of the major orchestras of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland and the major Swedish opera houses. During recent years he has extended his activities outside that base, touring Germany and France with the Stockholm Sinfonietta and touring Germany twice with the Sønderjyllands Symphony Orchestra while also undertaking engagements with other European orchestras.
