Welcome to the website of Sonja Schwedersky composer
“a connection of contemporary music with sounds of long ago and far away, which makes her music seem closeby”.
Sonja was born in 1963 and felt the attraction of music since childhood. From an early age she could be found sitting at the piano where she invented her own melodies. She started violinlessons age 9 and went to conservatory at 14.
Sonja played the violin in various ensembles and orchestras until the age of 30. The need to create her own music grew and eventually she exchanged her violin for composition.
