Possessing flawless technical mastery and a “beguiling silvery tone” (BBC Music Magazine), violinist JACK LIEBECK’s playing embraces the worlds of elegant chamber-chic Mozart through to the impassioned mastery required to frame Brett Dean The Lost Art of Letter Writing. Jack’s fascination with all things scientific has included performing the world premiere of Dario Marianelli Voyager Violin Concerto and collaborations with Professor Brian Cox; he programmes his own annual festival Oxford May Music around the themes of music, science and the arts. A professional photographer, he loves film and can be heard in the soundtracks of The Theory of Everything, Jane Eyre and Anna Karenina. Jack is a dedicated educator holding a professorship at the Royal Academy of Music – tips include “sing your way to string perfection” (The Strad).
A renowned soloist, Jack has performed with all the major British orchestras and further afield with Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Swedish Radio, Oslo Philharmonic, Queensland Symphony, Moscow State Symphony, St Louis Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Melbourne Symphony among many others.
Recent solo performances include a concert with the BBC Ulster Orchestra and a performance of the Marianelli Voyager Concerto in Lucca, Italy, a concert with the National Symphony Orchestra at Cadogan Hall in London and a recital performance as part of ‘This is Rattle’ at LSO St Luke’s. Jack has recently returned from a tour of Australia with the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. Future engagements include RPO, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and taking part in the BBC Radio 3’s Wellcome Collection for the Wellcome Trust. In 2019 he co-curates the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s season as well as appearing as soloist in a variety of repertoire, upcoming recital and chamber tours include Australia, Sweden and across Germany and Switzerland with a variety of different artists including Professor Brian Cox.
