Notes & Reviews:

Praised by The New York Times for her 'clear articulation ... unequivocal phrasing ... [and] expressivity', Ingrid Jacoby has established herself as one of the most poetic and admired pianists of her generation. She has won numerous prizes, including the Artists Presentation Award, Steinway Hall Artists Prize, Baldwin National Piano and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competitions, the Concert Artists Guild Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Society of Arts and Letters. Since moving to England, she has performed with many major orchestras including the London Symphony, London Philharmonic and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras as well as the London Mozart Players, working with such eminent conductors as Mackerras, Slatkin, Sinopli, Susskindand and Kaspszyk. Recent high profile performances include concerts in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with the Russian National Orchestra and at the Salzburg Music Festival where she played works by Mozart. Her new recording of Mozart's Concertos K449and K595 complete with the Concert Rondo K382 accompanied by the internationally celebrated Academy of St Martin in the Fields under the baton of Sir Neville Marriner follows on from her critically acclaimed cycle of the Beethoven Concertos. Her Beethoven cycle received wonderful reviews: 'Jacoby revitalizes Beethoven's Piano Concertos ... terrifically and with so much intelligence and energy that all leading competitors pale by comparison'(Crescendo Magazine, Germany) and 'Utterly compelling ... here is a performance of Beethoven that is well-nigh flawless in every regard'(International Record Review).The booklet contains notes by Richard Wigmore in addition to personal insights by Ingrid Jacobyon Mozart. This recording will be available on iTunes as an exclusive download in March 2014. The release of this very high-profile recording marks an important milestone in Ingrid Jacoby's career.

Sunday Times, 4th May 2014
Jacoby, a robust but sensitive player, takes quite a leisurely view of K449 (the first movement gets slower), but achieves a good partnership with Marriner's orchestra, which realises K595's magical, rarefied textures beautifully.

The Observer, 20th April 2014
All the academy trademarks are here: crisp tempi, lightness of touch and sparkling sound. Ingrid Jacoby is in suitably playful mood, dancing through the finale of the E flat major concerto and charming us with the childlike grace of No 27's larghetto.
