The Strad: Persuasive readings of Locatelli

Een fantastische review van het Locatelli album in het toonaangevende magazine The Strad deze maand!

'Dutch violinist Lisa Jacobs performs three of Locatelli’s twelve 1733 concertos L’arte del violino op.3 with bold characterisation, and meets their formidable technical challenges with commendable athleticism and élan. She decodes Locatelli’s complex notation with artistry, makes light of his sometimes stratospheric position-work, demonstrates remarkable finger dexterity in realising the requisite extensions and double- and multiple-stoppings, and masters with apparent ease his extraordinary range of annotated bowings. Her 1683 Rugeri proves an ideal partner in recreating Locatelli’s bel canto style, and she dispatches the virtuoso capriccios in each concerto with finesse and aplomb.'
