Ingrid Jacoby, piano

"clear articulation... unequivocal phrasing... (and) expressivity" (The New York Times)

Ingrid Jacoby has established herself as one of the most poetic and admired pianists of her generation.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Ms. Jacoby began her piano studies at age four. She later studied with Larisa Gorodecka, a pupil of Heinrich Neuhaus, and went on to win the Baldwin Piano Competition and the Concert Artists Guild International Competition. She has since performed to critical acclaim in major concert venues in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa, and worked with many of the world's leading conductors, including Sir Charles Mackerras, Leonard Slatkin, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Walter Susskind, and Lord Yehudi Menuhin. Currently making her home in the United Kingdom, Ms. Jacoby has appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the London Mozart Players. She has performed solo recitals at Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and, at the invitation of HRH The Prince and Princess of Wales, at Apsley House. Ms. Jacoby is a frequent performer at international music festivals such as the Aldeburgh, Aspen, Covent Garden, Tuscan Sun Festival, and the Salzburg Festival.

Ms. Jacoby has made numerous recordings for various labels, including a CD of Beethoven piano works, voted the Classic FM "Top Classic Release" in 1995, and a recording of Russian solo piano music, which was named a Gramophone "Pick of the Year 2001". In addition, Ms. Jacoby has recorded piano concertos by Grieg, Schumann, Shostakovich, and Ustvolskaya, together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to great acclaim.
