Concert violinist Frida Backman lived in the UK for a long period and is now settled in Raseborg, Finland. She is a highly sensitive performer, a soloist and chamber musician. Passionate about bringing live music widely to people she performs in both traditional and experimental settings. She is always on the lookout for new avenues to connect people to beautiful, heartfelt live music.

Frida performes classical recitals at established festivals and she creates new musical events such as music mediations, improvised "heart music" and even playing to animals and their owners. She particularly enjoys giving musical comfort where needed at funerals and other times and situations of need. Private bookings can be made through her company Backman Concerts on backmanconcerts(at)gmail.com.

Thoughts of teaching music creatively and differently led to setting up Frida's studio - a small scale private violin school in Raseborg focusing on fostering expressive, soulful playing and training performance skilled Music Warriors to delight the public in collaboration with local parishes and societies providing entertainment locally.

Frida has experience of leading workshops in improvisation to string teachers as well as students.

Frida is grateful for the Artist grant by the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland facilitating work on new concerts and concepts from April 2024 to March 2025.


Frida has dug deep into archives and libraries and has collaborated with many living composers to bring forth new works and the rediscoveries of older forgotten ones. Recent projects include a cycle of J.S.Bach violin works in the shape of music meditations, assisting the publication by Fennica Gehrman of the printed sheet music to the previously lost neo-romantic violinsonata by Yrjö Kilpinen in collaboration with composer Walter Wolff. The Kilpinen Violin Sonata was premiered in New York and Helsinki together with pianist Collin Hansen. In Spring 2023 Frida developed a brand new concept of concert series with personalised improvised music - MUSIC OF THE HEART - a fusion of relaxation, and meditation with healing, channeled music for the participants.

The album titled "Integration - the solo violin over five centuries" showcases the the 500-year old history of the violin and is dedicated to everyone interested in the voice of the violin, its emotional expressiveness and the solo repertoire. It includes four premiere recordings of music by composers Walter Wolff, Roger Wanamo, Zura Dzagnidze and Lasse Mårtenson. Reviewed in Swedish by Leif Nysten here in VN .


The album INTEGRATION - Fuga 9474 can be bought at any Backman Concert live event for 20€.
