Jakob Lindberg read music at Stockholm University and studied lute and guitar at the Royal College of Music, London. Towards the end of his studies he decided to focus on renaissance and baroque music and is now one of the most prolific performers in this field. Jakob has made numerous recordings for BIS, many of which are pioneering in that they present a wide range of music on CD for the first time. Jakob has brought Scottish lute music to public attention, demonstrated the beauty of the Italian repertoire for chitarrone and recorded chamber music by Vivaldi, Haydn and Boccherini on period instruments.
An active continuo player on the theorbo and arch lute, Jakob has worked with many well- known English ensembles. It is, however, particularly through his live solo performances that he has become known as one of the finest lutenists in the world today.
