Praised internationally for his performances of the contemporary cello concerto, the 2021 Nordic Council Music Prize nominee, Jakob Kullberg, is one of the most multifaceted and respected Danish instrumentalists who has become known for his highly personal and fearless interpretations – a musical persona on today’s international music scene transcending the established notion of «the classical cellist»:

“I thought of The Velvet Underground and Nico’s debut album as the untrained voice of the world-renowned musician Kullberg oscillated between something perfect and imperfect and was disarming and touching.”

-Andreo Michaelo Mielczarek, Aarhus Stiftstidende

Recognised for his prolific and engaging performances as a soloist, he appears regularly with some of the world’s high-profile orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London, the BBC Philharmonic, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Sinfonia Varsovia, Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, among others, as well as the Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish symphony orchestras and sinfoniettas.
