"Liebeck combines a beguiling silvery sound with tantalising interpretative restraint, free of heart-on-the-sleeve rhetoric"
BBC Music Magazine Jan 2017
"Restrained treatment restores a gem"
The latest installment of the complete music of Bruch for violin and orchestra has just been released on Hyperion Records. It has already received wonderful reviews in Gramophone and Classicalsource.com
“what Liebeck seems to be saying is that Bruch needs no additional sweeteners. His playing is unpretentious and strikingly introspective, resulting in an Adagio of quiet dignity... urgent, vibrant playing from Liebeck, who embraces every opportunity for contrast.” Gramophone Jan 2016
"There is much to admire in this account of No.1, not least Jack Liebeck’s aristocratic address and his silvery sound. It’s a big, expressive account of this familiar Concerto..." Classicalsource.com
Jack received a glowing review in The Age (Australia) for his performance of Dvorak Violin Concerto with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra under Jakub Hrusa.
"Jack Liebeck, soloist for Dvorak's Violin Concerto, invested that work with a soaring vitality, from the hefty proclamations of the opening movement to the infectious, searchingly exposed furiant finale handled with an admirably reliable bowing technique. Here is a talent with an individual voice, confident in articulation, capable of vehemence without stridency and a lilting elegance of phrasing, best heard in the concerto's eloquent adagio: a memorable highpoint in this exemplary concert."
