“An outstanding debut.”
Mattias Jacobsson Schulstad is a Swedish classical guitarist who has made recordings, performed as soloist with orchestra, and developed the guitar’s repertoire.
His full-length recording debut Invocación explores Spanish composer Tárrega, and introduced the notion today that Tárrega was inspired by Chopin. Invocación was produced by David Frost, and named Editor’s Choice by Gramophone. It was chosen as Album of the Week by Classic FM (U.K.) and WQXR (New York).
Mattias is inspired by the human voice, and often plays music rooted in song. His recording of “Come, Heavy Sleep,” from Britten’s Nocturnal after John Dowland, was made in collaboration with Albert Augustine for The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
