Currently residing in Barcelona, Australian classical guitarist Jacob Cordover enjoys a truly international career. His “consummate artistry” (Adelaide Advertiser, Australia) has enticed audiences in over a dozen countries across four continents.
Following the success of the Australian Guitar Duo’s National Tour last year, Jacob will return to Australia again this May, this time for his first solo tour in three years. Jacob will perform a range of music that reflects his varied musical and personal background and his concerts will include Australian compositions alongside Spanish masterpieces as well as standard works from the classical guitar repertoire.
Since completing his undergraduate studies with renowned performer and pedagogue Timothy Kain at the ANU School of Music, Jacob has undertaken post graduate studies in Spain and France, has won numerous prizes in international competitions including a first prize at the Concurso Internacional de Guitarra de Córdoba, Spain, and has made TV and radio appearances in Australia, Canada and the USA.
During his May tour, audiences can expect to hear works for solo guitar by Isaac Albeniz, Gaspar Sanz, Ross Edwards, Leo Brouwer, Lennon/McCartney and more. In what will be Jacob’s only Australian performances for 2013, Jacob will be joined by special guest Laura Karney (oboe & cor anglais). Together they will perform music for guitar and oboe and guitar and cor anglais including the beloved Siete Canciones Populares Españolas (7 Popular Spanish Songs) by Manuel de Falla.
Starting the first week of May 2013, Jacob will give a total of twelve recitals in Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and throughout NSW.
