'Sensual allure in Jacobs's deeply felt, beguilingly phrased readings’ (BBC Music Magazine, UK)
‘Magisterial authority and tonal splendor’ (Fanfare magazine, USA)
‘Audience stunned into breathless silence' (Grafschafter Nachrichten, Germany)
‘Musical mastery of this calibre is rarely heard' (Dutch Telegraph)

Dutch violin virtuoso Lisa Jacobs is known for her passionate performances, interesting programs and communicative qualities on stage. She is equally at home on the concert stage with concertos, chamber music, recitals and solo works. At the age of only 17, Lisa made her successful debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the baton of Riccardo Chailly.

She has played several times in all the major concert halls of the Netherlands and all around the world ever since, both as a soloist with renowned orchestras and conductors, as a recitalist with her pianist Ksenia Kouzmenko and at chamber music festivals, always to highly critical acclaim, receiving brilliant reviews and finding ecstatic audiences. She receives much attention in both national and international media, with live radio concerts, television broadcasts and interviews. Lisa has won several first prizes in both national and international competitions, one of them being at the 2nd International Jascha Heifetz Violin Competition in Lithuania 2005, where she received the Audience prize as well.

She collaborated with amongst others Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, Holland Symfonia, Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, Kiev State Symphony Orchestra, Georgian Sinfonietta, Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfonica de Juanaguato Mexico, Orchestra Sinfonica Abruzesse, Sinfonia Rotterdam, Residentie Orchestra, Joensuu City Orchestra and respected conductors such as Neeme Järvi, Jurjen Hempel, Massimo Quarta, Conrad van Alphen, Dirk Brossé, Roberto Rizzi-Brignoli, Juozas Domarkas, Jan Willem de Vriend, Carlos Miguel Prieto and Toby Hoffman.

Lisa has followed masterclasses with Thomas Brandis, Julian Rachlin, Sylvie Gazeau, Herman Krebbers, David Takeno, Nelli Shkollnikova, Philip Graffin and Maxim Vengerov, which was broadcasted on Dutch television. She plays a Rugieri violin from 1683, given to her on loan by a private person for which she is very grateful. This years engagements include concerts with the Wieniawski, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Locatelli and Vivaldi concertos, including concert tours to Slovenia, Italy, France, Georgia, China and Germany. November 2013, her debut cd with works by Franck and Ysaye was highly successfully released on Challenge Records International.
