Performer Spotlight: Nils Klöfver

Nils Klöfver is a prize-winning Swedish guitarist based in London. Active both as a solo performer and in ensembles, Nils is enjoying a busy freelance career with work ranging from recording film and TV scores to appearing in concert halls – stretching from London and around the UK to Japan.

Nils graduated from the Bachelor of Music (Hons) course at the Royal College of Music in 2006 with a first class degree. In the same year he also won first prize in the yearly Royal College of Music Guitar Competition, made his debut at the Wigmore Hall and appeared as a finalist in the distinguished Jörgen Rörby competition in Sweden.

Apart from playing the standard classical guitar Nils is also a keen alto-guitarist – an eleven-string instrument merging together the best qualities from the renaissance lute with the modern guitar. The alto-guitar is particularly suitable for early music and presents a new way of playing lute repertoire as a guitarist.

During his London years Nils has performed frequently with appearances in concert series, music festivals and in outreach work programmes in schools and hospitals. Nils has appeared in The Wigmore Hall, St. John Smith Square, The House of Commons, Downing Street, The Barbican Centre and The Bolivar Hall. Last spring also included a performance celebrating the Carl von Linnaeus tercentenary attended by Queen Silvia and King Carl XVI Gustav, the royal
family of Sweden.
