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.
