This release follows on from her critically acclaimed cycle of the Beethoven Concertos.
Ingrid Jacoby’s Beethoven cycle received wonderful reviews: ‘Jacoby revitalises 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 Jacoby on Mozart.
Since moving to England, Ingrid 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, Susskind 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.
The release of this very high-profile recording marks an important milestone in Ingrid Jacoby’s career. It is planned to follow up this release with a second volume of Mozart Concertos for issue in autumn 2014.
