Info for 24 Caprices of Niccolo Paganini
No violinist can escape them: Paganini’s Caprices. A beautiful, infamous cycle of 24 works for violin solo with an enormous arsenal of technical delights.
With his 24 Caprices Niccolò Paganini set out to fascinate the audience and play the kind of music that people had never experienced before. As a young talent Niccolò had shocked and enraged the public by imitating animals using his violin and in the Caprices he elaborated on that earlier experimentation. Bird-song, hunting horns, laughter, donkeys - they were all brought to life through his instrument. When it comes to special techniques and almost impossible dexterity, his 24 Caprices go a step further than Locatellis. Above all Paganini’s caprices are full of drama. Calm and moving passages interchange without warning withfiery, almost violent passages.
For Lisa Jacobs it is not the technical aspects of the music, but exactly that enormous variety in the musical characters, the extraordinary sound landscape, and the fantasy and lyricism that has amazed her all her life and has been an inspiration for this recording.
Dutch violinist Lisa Jacobs performs three of Locatteli’s concertos with bold characterization, and meets their formidable technical challenges with commendable athleticism and élan. (The Strad, UK, 2017)

At the age of only 17, Lisa made her successful debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the baton of Riccardo Chailly.
She has played several times in all the major concert halls of the Netherlands and all around the world ever since, both as a soloist with renowned orchestras and conductors, as a recitalist with her pianist Ksenia Kouzmenko and at chamber music festivals, always to high critical acclaim, receiving brilliant reviews and finding ecstatic audiences. She receives much attention in both national and international media, with live radio concerts, television broadcasts and interviews. Lisa has won several first prizes in both national and international competitions, one of them being at the 2nd International Jascha Heifetz Violin Competition in Lithuania 2005, where she received the Audience prize as well.

Lisa plays a Rugieri violin from 1683, given to her on loan by a private person for which she is very grateful.
Upcoming engagements include concerts playing the Wieniawski, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Locatelli and Vivaldi concertos, including concert tours to Greece, France, United Kingdom, Georgia, China and Germany.
In November 2013, her debut CD of works by Franck and Ysaye was given a highly successful release on Challenge Records International. Lisa’s next CD will be released in 2015.
Miss Jacobs started playing the violin at the age of 6. She was accepted in the Young Talent class of the Utrecht Conservatory by Joyce Tan at only eight years old. She continued studying with Ilya Grubert at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where she has graduated cum laude and with the highest distinction for both her bachelor and masters studies, at which occasion the jury spoke that they “were short on superlatives to praise her superb playing.” She also took lessons with Christoph Poppen at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich where she successfully finished her Konzertexam. This has been supported by the foundation Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
Further musical influences were received in several lessons with Thomas Brandis, Julian Rachlin, Herman Krebbers, David Takeno, Nelli Shkollnikova, Philip Graffin and Maxim Vengerov, which was broadcasted on Dutch television.
