Swedish lute master Jakob Lindberg will visit Stanbridge Hall Daylesford, for an intimate performance on the noble lute and stunning theorbo on Saturday, April 13.

This rare event, will explore the great works of the English, French and Italian Baroque with music by John Dowland, Robert Johnson, Alessandro Piccinini, Giovanni Kapsperger, Robert Ballard and Robert de Visee. Combining the haunting folk melodies of Scotland, in the abundant acoustic of Stanbridge Hall, the concert will explore a fascinating time in European history in the hands of the world’s greatest lutenist.

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. He has also brought Scottish lute music to public attention, demonstrated the beauty of the Italian repertoire for chitarrone and recorded chamber music by Vivaldi, Haydn, Boccherini and more 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.
