Göran Söllscher was born in 1955 in Växjö (Sweden). He grew up in Kalmar on the east coast of Sweden and started to play the guitar at the age of seven. After his musical education, including studies at the Malmö Conservatory (1975-77) and at the Royal Conservatory of Copenhagen (1976-79), Göran Söllscher embarked on an international career after winning the first prize at the “Concours International de Guitare” in Paris, in 1978. Since then he has performed regularly with all the major Scandinavian orchestras, made regular concert tours of Japan and China and played with the Camerata Bern, the Japan Philharmonic, the English Chamber, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, under such conductors as Claudio Abbado, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Sir Alexander Gibson, Sixten Ehrling, Woldemar Nelsson and Esa-Pekka Salonen. In addition he has made frequent appearances on radio and television. Göran Söllscher’s repertoire is exceptionally wide, ranging from Renaissance music to well-known standard concertos for guitar and orchestra, to contemporary music often written especially for him.
