  • Paul Jacobs brings to life the four most important piano works from the first half of Debussy’s career, including three Images, the composer’s earliest works for solo piano. Gramophone described the performances as “imaginative” and “extremely beautiful.”

  • Paul Jacobs brings to life the four most important piano works from the first half of Debussy’s career, including three Images, the composer’s earliest works for solo piano. Gramophone described the performances as “imaginative” and “extremely beautiful.”

  • Through the course of his career, Schoenberg used the solo piano format to experiment and develop ideas, resulting in a small but significant catalog of piano music that outlines the composer’s development from atonalism to serialism. Paul Jacobs performs the entirety of these defining 20th-century works here.

  • Often regarded as the epitome of Impressionism, Debussy’s Preludes for Piano were written at the midpoint of the composer’s career, displaying an evolution in both musical technique and outlook between the two books. Both books are included here in performances by Paul Jacobs described by the New York Times as “absorbing,” and “sensuous in the most refined way.”

  • Composed in 1915, Debussy’s piano etudes represent some of his most adventurous and unconventional writing. Gramophone declared that Jacobs's recordings of the pieces “should be heard by everyone.” This digital reissue also features En Blanc et Noir, a piece, from the same year, for two pianos, performed by Jacobs and Gilbert Kalish.

  • Paul Jacobs performs works for piano by three contemporary American composers: William Bolcom, Aaron Copland, and Frederic Rzewski. "Jacobs brings Copland's Four Piano Blues and Bolcom's Three Rags to life with idiomatic elegance," says Gramophone. "The premiere recording of Rzewski's Four North American Ballads (written for Jacobs) is unsurpassed in the way Jacobs balances contrapuntal lines within even the thickest textures."
