Anders Nyqvist was born in Trollhättan, Sweden. He started playing the trumpet at the age of ten. After graduating, he was offered a scholarship to study trumpet at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and at the Royal Academy of Music in London. For Anders Nyqvist the opportunity to work with composers and developing new sounds fundamentally contributes to his experience and conviction that being part of the creative process is an essential ingredient of music making. He has performed internationally both as soloist and with chamber music ensembles at most of the major festivals and concert venues. In 2004, Nyqvist became a member of Klangforum Wien.
