Anders Paulsson, born October 14, 1961, is a Swedish soprano saxophonist.
After studies at the Adolf Fredrik's Music School in Stockholm, the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and the Conservatoire de Bordeaux in France, Anders Paulsson received a Fulbright scholarship for studies at the Manhattan School of Music, New York City.
After his debut in 1992 in Carnegie Hall, Anders Paulsson has performed hundreds of concerts as a soprano saxophone soloist worldwide. He is probably the first musician in the world to have a solo career as a classical soprano saxophonist with the focus on commissioning new music from living composers.
He has appeared as soloist with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Choir, Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, and Sweden-based organist Andrew Canning.
His compositions for choir, soprano saxophone & organ are published on Gehrmans Music Publishing.
In 2012 Anders Paulsson was awarded the Royal Medal Litteris et Artibus for prominent artistic achievements as soprano saxophonist.Swedish Concertos for Soprano Saxophone 2012 Phono Suecia
