FROM THE PRESENTERS

“A rhythmically driving and sparkly performance [which] delighted the audience.”
(Vaughn Mauren, Chattervox newsletter of Greater Hartford Chapter AGO)

“Simon Thomas Jacobs’ playing exhibited a depth of musical expression and maturity well-beyond his age. Throughout the recital he demonstrated the full resources of the organ and its various colors most beautifully. An added bonus was his engaging and entertaining oral program notes which were woven throughout his well thought-out program.”
(Joel Martinson, Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, Dallas, Texas)

ABOUT HIS RECORDINGS

“Many of the sets of variations on the album likely began as improvisations, and Jacobs brings an improvisatory quality to his interpretation, especially when the passage work is at its quickest and most exciting, giving the music an effortless flair.”
(David Enlow, The Organ Club Journal, February 2016, on Jacobs’ first solo recording, Parthenia Nova)

 “Jacobs performs with great panache; his playing is rhythmically vital and shows fine attention to articulation and the clarity of the contrapuntal lines….Sweelinck and Böhm are interpreted with great sensitivity; registrations are imaginative and tempi finely judged…conspicuous virtuosity.”
(Martin Clarke, Organists’ Review, June 2016)
