BBC Music Magazine

March 2011


“That Paul Jacobs has the requisite stamina is certainly not in doubt...The playing is magnificent, with a splendid sense of colour and power...The registration and speed of each passage are finely judged...There is much to admire here, with dazzlingly refulgent, scrunching chords in the 'Resurrection' movement”
