Album Notes
"Each work receives a wonderfully sympathetic and highly accomplished interpretation with Cordover making full use of the most expressive registers manageable on the guitar .... Cordover managing to get to the very soul of this striking and brilliant music.” - Classical Guitar Magazine (UK)

"Cordover’s playing is extremely fluid; there’s no question about his technical abilities." - Classical Net

Enjoying a vibrant and varied international career, Jacob Cordover has appeared on stage throughout Australia, Canada, the USA, Spain, France, Germany, Slovakia, the Netherlands, Italy and the United Kingdom as a soloist and in his chamber ensembles, Zoco Duo (with oboist Laura Karney) and the Australian Guitar Duo (with Rupert Boyd). The Leicester Mercury wrote that Cordover "impresses with his intuitive musicianship and impeccable technique" and his playing has been described as "seductive" by John David (CEO -Australian Music Centre).

Following his performance as soloist with the Orquestra Simfònica de Balears “Ciutat de Palma” conducted by Geoffrey Simon, Mr. Cordover was praised as “an exceptional guitarist” by the music critic for the publication Ultima Hora. Jacob has also appeared as soloist with the Orchestra dell’Accademia l’Ottocento conducted by Carlo Barone performing Mauro Giuliani’s Primier Grand Concerto Op. 30 on a an original Gaetano Guadagnini guitar made in Italy in 1828. His strong interest in the application of appropriate performance practice of 19th-Century music has led to a number of historically informed performances of this repertoire on a variety of period guitars.

Aside from his formative studies at the Australian National University School of Music with renowned performer and pedagogue Timothy Kain, Jacob has undertaken post-graduate studies with Laura Young and Arnaldur Arnarson at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya and the Escola Luthier in Barcelona, Spain and with Carlo Barone at the Academia l’Ottocento in Paris, France. Masterclasses with Pavel Stiedl, Manuel Barrueco, Ricardo Gallen and Sergio Assad (amongst others) have also been influential in his playing.

Complementing his performance schedule, Mr. Cordover has won prizes and awards in international competitions the world over and has been the recipient of grants from: the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Tasmania, the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, the Australian National University Friends of the School of Music, artsACT, Swiss Global Artistic Foundation and the Australian Music Foundation.

Brilliant listening
This cd is one of the most brilliant examples of classical guitar music I have ever had the privilege of listening to.

ML Cohen

The bleeding edge of modern classical guitar
Added to the three pillars of virtuoso modern classical guitar music (El Decameron Negro, Koyunbaba, Hika) are two premiere recordings. This program ROCKS!
