The Canberra Times

“Jacob’s virtuoso technique and exquisite sense of line were memorably impressive.”
The Guardian, London

“Jacob plays the score with dazzling assurance tossing off the extended techniques as if they were so many diminished seventh arpeggios.”

Arnhem, Netherlands

“One of the outstanding pianists of his generation.”
Irish Times, Dublin

“Jacob’s recording for Opus One is unquestionably one of the finest recent releases of contemporary music.”
The New Records

“The pianism of Jeffrey Jacob is at once clean and intense, dazzling and delicate, and forever governed by intellect. From the standpoint of his programming—he specializes in the music of his own time and land—he is one of today’s most important artists.”
Ned Rorem

“There is a strong sense that Jacob composes as one might write a diary, with an almost compulsive need to express oneself. In this sense, Jacob is a brave artist, as he speaks to us directly, almost nakedly, from the heart.”
