In September 2013 they will perform this repertoire in Warsaw. Ingrid's following project with an orchestra is recording of two piano concertos by Mozart with the Academy of St. Marin in the Fields under Sir Neville Marriner.
Winner of numerous prizes, including the Artists Presentation Award, Steinway Hall Artists Prize, Baldwin National Piano and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competitions, Ingrid Jacoby’s highly acclaimed recital at Carnegie Hall was the result of receiving the Concert Artists Guild Award.
Since moving to England, she has performed with many major orchestras including the London Symphony, London Philharmonic and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras as well as the London Mozart players. Throughout her career, Ingrid Jacoby has worked with a number of eminent conductors such as Sir Charles Mackerras, Leonard Slatkin and Jacek Kaspszyk with recent high profile performances in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with the Russian National Orchestra and at the Salzburg Music Festival where she played Mozart.
Ingrid Jacoby comes from a family with deep musical roots; there is evidence to suggest she is directly descended from the pianist, composer, and Prussian nobleman, Prince Louis Ferdinand (1772 – 1806), to whom Beethoven dedicated his Third Piano Concerto. Prince Louis Ferdinand was the nephew of Frederick the Great, himself the composer of the famous theme which J S Bach used in his sublime Musical Offering.
