Jack Liebeck

Jack Liebeck was born in London in 1980. He attended the Purcell School and is currently a scholar at the Royal Academy of Music where he studies with Mateja Marinkovic, his teacher since 1988. Jack's first public appearance was for BBC television aged ten, when he played the role of young Mozart. Today he is described by the world press as "phenomenal", "an artist of international calibre, consummately talented", "inspired", "a superlative musician", "stunning".

From the age of eleven concerto and recital performances have taken him to Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia, the USA, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Turkey and Yugoslavia. At home Jack has appeared in many major venues across Britain including the Royal Festival Hall and Barbican Centre. Since the age of fourteen Jack has made concerto debuts with many acclaimed orchestras including the Nieuw Sinfonietta Amsterdam, the Halle, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic, the English Chamber, the Bournemouth Symphony, the Lausanne Chamber, and the Royal Scottish National Orchestras. Jack has toured in the UK and abroad with the Belgian National Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra and has appeared under the baton of several renowned conductors including Libor Pesek, Yuri Simonov, Sir Neville Marriner, Barry Wordsworth, Martyn Brabbins, Gunter Herbig and Bramwell Tovey. Jack's live performances have been broadcast on radio and television in Norway, Holland, France, Yugoslavia and on BBC Radio 3 and television. He also appears as a soloist on a Warner Classics CD of Oscar Wilde Fairy Tales narrated by Stephen Fry and Vanessa Redgrave with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

Jack was a prize-winner at the International Lipizer Competition in Gorizia and the International Competition in Sassari, Italy. Chamber music recitals include performances with Lynn Harrell, Andrew Marriner, Itamar Golan and Leon MacCawley, and festival appearances include Reims, Montpellier, Harrogate, Bath and Cheltenham. Last year Jack returned to the Royal Scottish National Orchestra to play Saint-Saens, made his London debut recital to a sold-out Wigmore Hall and also returned to the Cheltenham Festival. November featured an eleven-concert tour of the UK with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra performing Brahms Double (with the cellist, Tim Hugh) and Bruch Concertos. Future plans include his debut CD on the Quartz label - due to be released later this year and live concert broadcasts on both the BBC and Polish National Radio. Jack plays the "Ex-Wilhelmj" Guadagnini dated 1785.
