Composer and violinist Emmy Lindström has become known for her emotional and poignant music, seasoned with humorous elements in a fine balance. With her base in the neo-romantic, she explores completely new sound worlds and moves freely between these different poles. In 2010, she had an international breakthrough as a composer, when her piece Magnolia was performed in concert halls across Europe during the clarinetist Emil Jonason's Rising Star tour.

The big breakthrough came with the clarinet concertoAt the Hills of Hampstead Heath(2017), a joint commission between Helsingborgs Symphony Orchestra (HSO), Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Västerås Sinfonietta and Dalasinfonietta. The concert received a very positive reception and was also recorded by Emil Jonason and HSO duringStefan Solyoms management. The concert has since been performed regularly, both in Europe and the USA.

In the 2018/19 season, Emmy Lindström was Composer-in-Residence in Helsingborg and then wrote the orchestral workThe Lost Clown, a reflection of Schönberg's 'Pierrot Lunaire' in 21 short movements. She then made a suite from the work for brass band for Östgöta Blåsarsymfoniker andChristian Lindberg.

Emmy Lindström's music is getting more and more attention. In 2022, her oratorio was premieredThe Eel Gospel, based on Patrik Svensson's book of the same name, at Folkoperan, and then went on tour across the country. In the 2022/23 season, she was Composer in Residence at Spira Kulturhus with the Jönköping Sinfonietta, and in the fall of 2023, the Radio Choir together with the Radio Symphony Orchestra premiered herSong without words,a tribute to Stenhammar and his cantata 'Sången'. Emmy Lindström has also collaborated with the children/youth orchestras in El Sistema, for which she has composed a number of orchestral works.

Lindström is known for his neo-romantic tonality and melodic anchoring. With it as a base, she also explores completely new sound worlds and moves freely between these different poles. With a broad musical background and anchoring in Swedish choral tradition, classical music, jazz/folk/vision/musical, Lindström often surprises us with new approaches in his music.

In the spring of 2025, her concerto for orchestra will be premiered,Rose ring, by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Then there will be a string quintet commissioned by Sweden's Radio P2 and a trumpet concert in two versions (symphony orchestra and wind orchestra).

Emmy Lindström was born and raised in Linköping. She has studied violin, orchestral playing and composition at the Royal Academy of Music in
Stockholm. In parallel with her university studies, she has taken private composition lessons for e.g.Rolf MartinssonandAlbert Schnelzer.
