Jacob Kellermann


Praised for his “excellent technical skills and singing tone” (American Record Guide) and for his “exuberant and decisive interpretations” (Dagens Nyheter), Jacob Kellermann has established himself as one of Scandinavia´s most visible and versatile guitarists. With an extensive repertoire that features concertos, solo works och and chamber music as well as his own transcriptions, he constantly searches for new expressive possibilities for the guitar.

Regularly performing in all major venues of his native country Sweden, he also appears internationally in some of the world’s most prestigious stages – from Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Gasteig Munich to Tokyo Bunka Kaikan and Seoul Art Center. As a soloist, he has worked with orchestras such as London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra (UK), Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Gävle Symphony Orchestra (Sweden), Bielefelder Philharmoniker (DE), Orquesta de Valencia (Spain), Tallin Chamber Orchestra (Estonia), Querétaro Philharmonic Orchestra (Mexiko) and Incheon Philharmonic Orchestra (South Korea). He has partaken in festivals such as Enescu Festival (Romania), Festival Dag in de Branding (the Netherlands) and the El Jem Festival (Tunisia). In 2020 Jacob performed at the official award ceremony of the Nobel Prize, an honor bestowed to a selected few Swedish musicians.
