20 year old violinist, Johan Dalene, is already making an impact on the international scene, performing with leading orchestras and in important recital halls both at home in Sweden and abroad. He won the Norwegian Soloist Prize, and received the First Prize at the prestigious 2019 Carl Nielsen Competition.

Johan began playing the violin at the age of four and made his professional concerto debut three years later. In Summer 2016, he was a student-in-residence at Switzerland’s Verbier Festival and in 2018 was accepted on to the Norwegian Crescendo programme, where he has worked closely with mentors Janine Jansen, Leif Ove Andsnes and Gidon Kremer. Johan currently studies with Per Enoksson, Professor at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm as well as with Janine Jansen.

Recording exclusively for BIS, Johan released his first recording album on the label in December 2019, featuring the Tchaikovsky and Barber violin concerti with the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra. In April 2020, Johan performed Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, alongside Janine Jansen. During the 2020/21 season, he is Artist in Residence with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Johan’s schedule for the coming seasons includes performances with all the major Scandinavian orchestras and debuts with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, and Konzerthausorchester Berlin, as well as solo recitals in London’s Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall. Johan was recently selected as a European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Star. He is also a BBC New Generation Artist from 2019-21.
