Currently residing in Barcelona, Spain and enjoying a truly international career as both a concert and recording artist, Jacob Cordover “impresses with his intuitive musicianship and impeccable technique” (Leicester Mercury, UK). His “consummate artistry” (Adelaide Advertiser, Australia) has enticed audiences in over a dozen countries across four continents. Mr. Cordover has appeared as soloist with the Las Colinas Symphony, the Arlington Symphony, the Garland Symphony, the Orquestra Simfònica de Balears “Ciutat de Palma” and the Orchestra dell’Accademia l’Ottocento”. As a recording artist, Mr. Cordover has released three solo CDs to much critical acclaim; Stélé (independent release, 2004) was hailed by Classical Guitar Magazine (UK) as “wonderfully sympathetic and highly accomplished… Cordover managing to get to the very soul of this striking and brilliant music.” His second solo release Blackwattle Caprices (Cala Records, 2013) received the following review in the American Record Guide: “His technique is flawless. His expression tasteful and always interesting and moving.” Mr. Cordover´s most recent release Expresivo (Cala Records, 2016) contains some of the most well-loved and well-known Spanish and Latin American works for guitar alongside arrangements of popular songs and works from the world of jazz. Included in the Critic’s Choice Best of 2016 from the American Record Guide, Expresivo came highly recommended – “Even if you already have these pieces in other performances, Cordover’s have such a distinct and attractive personality that it will be worth finding.”
Mr. Cordover plays guitar by Greg Smallman and Sons (2006), Elias Bonnet Monné (2015) and the Famiglia Vinaccia (1915) and exclusively uses Knobloch Strings.
