Notes & Reviews:

Ingrid Jacoby has established herself as one of the most poetic and admired pianists of her generation. This recording of Beethoven's Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 4 marks her debut on ICA Classics 'Live' series. Beautifully recorded in the best digital sound, there is a palpable feeling of the live performance being created in the Witold Lutoslawski Concert Studio.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
This is the first release in Ingrid Jacoby's cycle of the Beethoven concertos, and it's off to a good start. It's a lovely performance that emphasizes how much in common the piece has with its disc mate - rendered with the same skill and sensitivity.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
I certainly enjoyed this account [of No. 2], which is energetic and witty, bringing to an end a smiling and engaging performance of the concerto. The Fourth, my personal favourite in the canon, also comes off well...Ingrid Jacoby's new recordings shouldn't be overlooked. This is an enjoyable and successful coupling, which I'm glad to have heard.
