Bojan Čičić originally graduated with a diploma in modern violin from the Zagreb Academy of Music. After finishing his studies at the Paris Conservatoire and The Guildhall School of Music & Drama with F. Fernandez and Rachel Podger, he embarked on a career as a chamber musician and leader using the vast and diverse musical influence he was lucky to have gained in his formative years.
In April 2012, Bojan became principal second violin of the AAM. He is also Leader of Florilegium, and performs with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
In August 2006 Trevor Pinnock asked him to be one of the soloists with the European Brandenburg Ensemble on their tour across Europe and in the Far East. Their recording of JS Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos won the Gramophone Award in 2008.
Future projects outside AAM include leading the ensemble La Nuova Musica on their five recordings for Harmonia Mundi USA with director David Bates, as well as an exciting tour with Bojan’s own group Suonar Cantando of Belgium and The Netherlands, performing Venetian, Croatian and Viennese baroque music.
Bojan plays on a violin by F.Rugieri made in around 1680, kindly loaned to him by the Jumpstart Junior Foundation.
