Olle Davidsson

Bas

Sverige

Jeg startede med at spille bas som 12årig. Efter at have spillet fagot, violin og kontrabas i et par år, besluttede jeg at koncentrere mig om bassen. Jeg syntes, det var sjovere at spille et instrument, der tilbød megen modstand – og dét fandt jeg i bassen.

Efter studietiden på Royal College of Music i Stock­holm og Royal College of Music i London begyndte jeg at arbejde i National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland i Dublin. Efter et par skønne år i Irland besluttede jeg at flytte tilbage til Sverige, hvor jeg fik ansættelse i Malmö Symphony Orchestra. Herfra gik turen over sundet til Copenhagen Phil, hvor jeg har spillet siden 1996.

Udover jobbet som ledende kontrabas er jeg også leder af kontrabasstudierne ved Malmö Musikkonservatorium.

Jeg bor i Sverige på den svenske vestkyst med min kone, fire børn og hund Berlioz. I fritiden nyder jeg madlavning, træarbejde og hurtige biler.
