Croatian-born violinist Bojan Čičić has established himself as one of the leading names on the early music scene, as both a soloist and music director.

In addition to being the leader of the Academy of Ancient Music, he directs ensembles including De Nederlandse Bachvereniging, Dunedin Consort and Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra. As a soloist he appeared with Academy of Ancient Music, Orchestra of the 18th-Century and Kioi Hall Chamber Orchestra Tokyo.

Bojan formed his own group, Illyria Consort, which explores and specializes in lesser known repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries. Their debut Delphian Records album of Giovanni Stefano Carbonelli Sonate da camera achieved great critical acclaim and won “Presto Recordings of the Year Award” in 2017. Their collaboration with Marian Consort Adriatic Voyage won the same award in 2021.

His recent recording of J.S. Bach Sonatas and Partitas was nominated for the Critic’s Choice 2023 in the Gramophone Magazine and Editor’s Choice in BBC Music Magazine.

In 2016, Bojan Čičić was appointed Professor of Baroque Violin at the Royal College of Music, and is passionate about training the next generation of instrumentalists in historically-informed performing styles.
