Carin Bartosch Edström

Carin was born in Malmö (Sweden) in 1965 but had a largely international upbringing, including periods in the USA and Italy. She has also worked with Italian voice coaching and translations of opera librettos, specializing particularly in older music. In 1987 she founded the Lund Students Opera, for which she directed a number of productions, including Stravinsky’s Mavra and Hindemith’s Hin und Zurück. But it was in the 1990s, after a stint as director of Växjö’s Musica Vitae chamber orchestra between 1990 and 1992, that her interest in composition was aroused. She studied at the Malmö and Stockholm academies of music (graduating in 1999) for Rolf Martinsson, Hans Gefors, Lars Ekström, Lars-Erik Rosell and Sven-David Sandström.
Bartosch Edström is one of the founding members of Opus 96, the women’s composers association, and together with Mats Rondin and Marianne Jacobs was also the founder of the Skanör/Falsterbo chamber music festival.
