MÖLLER, Johannes



At the age of 12, as a self-taught composer, Johannes Möller experienced an outburst of creativity that resulted in a large quantity of mainly chamber music works for various instrumentations. A selection of these works was recorded on a CD with some of the top instrumentalists in his homeland Sweden when he was 14 years old. A critic from the Swedish newspaper Göteborgsposten wrote about these compositions, “What is to become of Johannes Möller? A Swedish Mozart – in our time?”
In his later teenage years, Johannes continued composing, experimenting with various compositional styles and techniques. However, it was not until he composed his piece When the Winds Dissolve for alto flute and guitar in 2006 that he found his personal voice. In 2009, he won a European Guitar Award for his guitar solo composition and in October 2010, a CD was released of Johannes performing his own music.
As a guitarist Johannes began his performing career at the age of 13. Since then he has found time for more than 500 appearances in Europe, Asia, South and North America. In 2010 he was awarded first prize in the GFA Concert Artist Competition, which is often considered the most prestigious guitar competition in the world. In 2008 he won the Dutch Vriendenkrans Concours where he was competing against performers in all of the instrumental categories. As a part of this award his name has been engraved on a metal plate that can be seen in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Critics have also noted his special qualities, writing of his playing “Guitarist Johannes Möller achieved miracles with his lucid, spacious playing” (Stephen Pettitt, London Evening Standard).
Johannes has earned a Bachelor of Music with Honours from the Royal College of Music in London where he studied guitar with Gary Ryan and Carlos Bonell and composition with William Mival. He has received a Masters degree from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague where he studied with Zoran Dukic. He also received a scholarship for excellent students from the Royal Conservatoire that allowed him to study privately with Pavel Steidl in Czech Republic as well as composition lessons with Dusan Bogdanovic in the USA. He completed a second masters degree at the Conservatoire in Amsterdam where he studied guitar with Lex Eisenhardt and composition with Richard Ayers.
