Andrej Power

Concertmaster and member of the orchestra since 2014.

Andrej Power has been serving as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal concertmaster since 2014, the youngest player to be awarded that position in the orchestra’s long history. Alongside his position in Stockholm, and his new role as leader of the London Symphony Orchestra, he is frequently invited to guest lead orchestras including the Swedish Radio Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.

Andrej Power has appeared as a soloist with most orchestras in Sweden and his solo performances, many of which have been broadcast on radio and television, have taken him to the US, China and across Europe with orchestras such as the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Beijing National Opera Orchestra and the Utah Symphony.

Inspired by his grandfather Naoum Power, he began playing the violin at the age of 3. He subsequently studied with Prof. Olga Parchomenko from the age of 12, then at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm with Prof. Henryk Kowalski and at the Zurich University of the Arts in Switzerland with Prof. Zakhar Bron. 

Chamber music being a big part of his musical life he regularly performs in different groups and also has his own quartet.
