A 2003 Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient, violinist Colin Jacobsen first played to critical acclaim at the age of 14, collaborating with Kurt Masur and the New York Philharmonic in a performance that was hailed by The New York Times: “Jacobsen was the impressively accomplished soloist in Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, sounding as if he were born to the instrument and its sweet, lyrical possibilities.” He recently returned to the New York Philharmonic in a performance of Brahms’ Double Concerto with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and David Zinman conducting. Mr. Jacobsen’s wide-ranging musical activities are part of a generational wave that is taking classical music into a much broader context. As a soloist, he continues to play with orchestras worldwide, including the YouTube Symphony and those of Albany, Charleston, Chicago, San Francisco, Nashville, and Philharmonia Baroque. He has performed with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, as a member of the Metropolitan Museum Artists in Concert, and has collaborated with musicians such as Emanuel Ax, Joshua Bell, Kim Kashkashian, Mark O’Connor, Phillip Glass, Steven Isserlis, Christian Tetzlaff, Mitsuko Uchida, and Jan Vogler. Mr. Jacobsen’s summer festival appearances have included Banff, Caramoor, Marlboro, Mostly Mozart, Ravinia’s Steans Institute, Salzburg, and Tanglewood.
