About Jacob:

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.

Bradley is currently a PhD candidate in guitar performance at the Australian National University. He is also preparing to complete specialist studies in early-19th century guitar performance practice at the Accademia l’Ottocento (Italy), studying under Carlo Barone.

He was awarded the 2007 Erika Haas Award for the most outstanding instrumental performance student at the Australian National University. He is currently the recipient of an Australian Professional Award.

Bradley is actively engaged in bringing a diverse and accessible range of chamber music to new audiences. As a member of the BREW Guitar Duo and contemporary music septet dominantSEVEN, he has commissioned significant new works by Australian composers including Robert Davidson and Richard Charlton. As a soloist and chamber musician, his performances have included concerts at the Córdoba International Guitar Festival (Spain), the Project Canción Española (Spain), the Nikšić International Guitar Festival (Montenegro), the Canberra International Chamber Music Festival and the Darwin International Guitar Festival (Australia). In 2009, Bradley joined Australia’s leading guitar quartet, Guitar Trek, which has pioneered new repertoire for the guitar family for over two decades under the leadership of Tim Kain. Bradley also enjoys collaborative projects with clarinettist Nicole Canham and soprano Rebecca MacCallion.

As a composer, Bradley has been featured in ABC Classic FM’s Young Australian Composers series celebrating “Australian Music Month.” His guitar works are regularly played on ABC Classic FM, and have been finalist entries in the 3rd International Australian Guitar Composition Competition, and the ASME Young Composers’ Awards. In 2011, Bradley won the Canberra Classical Guitar Society Composition Competition, which awards him a commission to compose a new work for guitar orchestra. In addition to writing guitar music, Bradley’s work for carillon will soon be published in an upcoming volume of Australian carillon music. Bradley’s choral works have also been performed by the choir of the Wesley Uniting Church in Forrest, Canberra.

Bradley is on staff in the Guitar Department at the Australian National University School of Music, where he has also tutored and lectured in various undergraduate musicology subjects.
