a premium grade offering .....
an assured and stylish guitarist ...... there are no reservations ...
Suite for Guitar changes all that ...
and could I retrospectively make this album my pick of 2012?"
Paul Fowles - Classical
..... a wealth of diversity and flexibility in his style
From soothing and simplistic textures to extended techniques and alternative soundscapes he pulls out some nice Breamian orchestration and character ...
I love the album for Jakobsen’s clean and inspired playing, but also for its conceptual integrity.
Bradford Werner - This is Classical Guitar
.... a testament of unbelievable talent and artistic craftsmanship
..... but it's not just about technical skills that are endearing and impressive. His style of playing is ambiguous, flexible, and extremely clean and inspired .... he perfectly operates the sounds of the guitar
In terms of interpretation and as an excursion into the brittle (music) world of this remote group of islands, Jakobsen's program is as ambitious as it is fascinating ...
... the unusual compilation will undoubtedly serve as a reference recording for a long time
.... a bold, noteworthy release, and is
highly recommended for enlightened listeners of contemporary
