The performance of the First Concerto opens auspiciously, courtesy of a sprightly rendition of the orchestral introduction by Sinfonia Varsovia and Jacek Kaspszyk. Jacoby’s playing in this movement gives much pleasure; her fingerwork is crisp and delicate and she invests the music with an appropriate degree of energy.
Miss Jacoby makes a dreamy, romantic start to the Largo…[her] playing is clean and deft…this is a most enjoyable account of the First Concerto.
The performance of the first movement [of the Third Concerto] is a success. Miss Jacoby’s playing is lithe and graceful and Kaspszyk and his orchestra support her effectively. She projects Beethoven’s cadenza well. The recording itself is good…
The Largo goes very well. Ingrid Jacoby offers poised playing and invests the music with a suitable amount of feeling. There’s a lot to enjoy in the rondo, too; much of it is nicely vivacious.
Anyone buying this disc…will find much to enjoy here. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
