5.0 out of 5 stars FREDERICK JACOBI June 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Jacobi music is refreshing both Biblical and modern. Concerto for Cello and Orchestra is beautifully done by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra under William Strickland. Irene Jacobi played the piano for Ballade for Violin and Piano. I wonder if she is a daughter as it was composed in 1942. I bought it for the Claremont String Quartet's Hagiographa. It is a romp. The musicians are not in Int'l Who's Who of Music & Musicians. American Masters is an excellent, low cost series from Composers

I first encountered the name of Frederick Jacobi, along with those of Marion Bauer, Emerson Withorne and Louis Gruenberg in the essential book of Carol Oja on Music Modernism in New York in the 1920s (Making Music Modern: New York in the 1920s), in the chapter about the moderate modernists, .

Well, there is not much that is modernist in the music contained on this CRI disc, even moderately. By the 1930s Jacobi had rediscovered his Jewish roots and turned to subjects inspired by the Ancient Testament. Maybe he relinquished what had been modern in his previous writing, in favor of a mainstream Romantic style whose main influences seem to be Dvorak and Brahms. Indeed this is the influence one hears in the Cello Concerto from 1932 and, compared to Bloch's Shelomo and other "Hebraic" compositions, the Jewish flavor is very moderate. Again in Hagiographa (Holy Writings) from 1938, a quintet for Piano and Strings depicting the plights of Job, the moods of Ruth and the battle of Jericho, Brahms and Dvorak come to mind, peppered here and there with a little Franck and a fair amount of Bloch (especially in the middle movement). The Ballade for Violin & Piano from 1942 is the most Blochian - but it is the mild Bloch of Baal Shem rather the brutal and angry one of the 1st Violin and Piano Sonata, and it is also some 20 years after Bloch's masterpieces.
