Jacob Adams

Violist • Teacher • Musicologist


“The Janacek pieces are Adams’s own arrangements of the violin originals, quite beautifully done…Adams’ playing is expressive and intense…I would recommend this to any serious music lover without hesitation.”

– American Record Guide, Sept/Oct 2016

“Violist Jacob Adams’ performance…displayed the maturity of his mind and technique. He has a canny sense of the arch of this movement [1st movement of Hindemith’s Der Schwanendreher]; his high register is strong, and he is comfortable with his instrument – it speaks. Mr. Adams also enjoys another crucial edge: a convincing stage demeanor.”                    – Santa Barbara News-Press

“Played with exceptional feeling and virtuosity…it would be hard to imagine anyone playing [these pieces] as well, let alone better.” – Fanfare Magazine
