Johan Ullén


Johan Ullén studied piano and composition at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. He has performed as a soloist with many Swedish orchestras and toured in Europe, the United States and South America. As a composer, Johan Ullén has written chamber music, orchestral music, songs and operas, which have been performed at festivals and in concert halls in Sweden and abroad. An acclaimed work was his all-night opera "Kärleksmaskinen", which was commissioned by Piteå Chamber Opera and premiered on tour in Sweden in 2019. In December 2021, the album "Infinite Bach", Ullén's recomposition of J.S. Bach's four violin concertos, with soloist Christian Svarfvar and London Philharmonic Orchestra, was released at the record label Rubicon. The album quickly rose to second place in Apple Music and it currently has over a million plays.
