Widely considered one of the foremost 20th-century American composers during his lifetime, and especially known for his concert music inspired either by Jewish or by American Indian sources, Frederick Jacobi was championed by such legendary conductors as Koussevitzky, Stokowski, and Monteux. Jacobi's "Jewish" compositions combine the refinements of the great European romantic tradition with an evocative melodic and harmonic palette, suggesting both traditional Jewish flavors and Near Eastern atmospheres. The Milken Archive is proud to reintroduce Jacobi's music on these new recordings.
Reviews and Recognitions:
"Having listened to the Cello Concerto (as well as the balance on this ), I am of the opinion that it is a work of substance and power. It is not too far off the mark to state further that it is a work of genius." —Morton Gold, Jewish Post and Opinion
"The opening of Frederick Jacobi's Cello Concerto will take your breath away.... If you love wonderfully rich romantic musical tapestries, tinged with ethnic (Jewish and native American) melodies and harmonies, Jacobi is a composer well worth exploring." —Jerry Dubins, Fanfare
"[Frederick Jacobi's Cello Concerto] is a supremely lyrical, even spiritual work." —Henry Fogel, Symphony
