JACOBI, W.: Piano Works (Blome, Groschopp)

Wolfgang Jacobi is known to saxophone and accordion players, but he is otherwise largely forgotten and his wider output is still being rediscovered today. He was declared a ‘degenerate’ artist in 1930s Germany but found inspiration in Italy, alluding to Baroque styles in his Sonatas as well as in earlier works that also invoke the spirit of Reger and Grieg. Post-war freedom is reflected in the joyously neo-Classical Sonatine and charming Miniaturen, while the substantial Musik für zwei Klaviere explores the symbolism of one of J.S. Bach’s favourite chorale melodies ‘Durch Adams Fall.’
