Frida Backman is an artist with entrepreneurial spirit and has created joyful musical moments across the world. Current 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 and the release of the album titled "Integration - the solo violin over five centuries". Frida reaches new audiences by expanding into new settings and concepts for enjoying live music. She 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.

The New Album "Integration" is available

The album INTEGRATION (Fuga 9474) can be bought from fuga.fi, at any live violin event by Backman Concerts, 20€ or contact us by email with your address.
