Croatian-born violinist Bojan Čičić specialises in repertoire ranging from the late 16th century to the Romantic violin concertos of Mendelssohn and Beethoven.
He has recently appeared as a soloist with the Kioi Hall Chamber Orchestra Tokyo in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and with Instruments of Time and Truth in violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Beethoven. He is the leader of the Academy of Ancient Music and the ensemble Florilegium.
His recording of J.S. Bach’s Concerto for two violins with Rachel Podger was recently named the best available recording of the work by BBC Music Magazine.
In 2020 he will appear as director and soloist with several ensembles: Het Gelders Orkest, the Netherlands, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and the Washington Bach Consort.
Bojan formed his own group, the Illyria Consort, to explore rare repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries. They have performed at the Utrecht Early Music Festival, the Korkyra Baroque Festival, Festival Laus Polyphoniae, and at the Festival de Sablé.
