British/German violinist, director and festival director Jack Liebeck, possesses “flawless technical mastery” and a “beguiling silvery tone” (BBC Music Magazine). Jack has been named as the Royal Academy of Music’s first Émile Sauret Professor of Violin. Jack’s playing embraces the worlds of elegant chamber-chic Mozart through to the impassioned mastery required to frame Brett Dean The Lost Art of Letter Writing. Jack’s release of Schoenberg and Brahms violin concertos with BBC Symphony Orchestra in 2020 was the May Edition ‘Recording of the Month’ and Concerto Choice Album of the Year for BBC Music Magazine. Jack’s latest album, Ysaÿe Six Sonatas, also on Orchid Classics was released in October 2021 to high acclaim with 5 star reviews in The Times and BBC Music Magazine.
