Paul Jacobs (b1977)

Paul Jacobs is the only organ soloist ever to receive a GRAMMY® Award (2011). He made musical history at the age of 23 when he performed the complete organ works of JS Bach in an 18-hour non-stop marathon performance, and subsequently has performed the complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen in nine-hour marathon concerts. Known for his presentations of new works and core repertoire, Jacobs had performed in all 50 of the United States by the age of 31, and also has toured in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. He has appeared as soloist with the symphony orchestras of Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Kansas City, and Phoenix, among others. Jacobs studied at the Curtis Institute of Music, double-majoring with John Weaver (organ) and Lionel Party (harpsichord), and at Yale University with Thomas Murray. He joined the faculty of The Juilliard School in 2003, and was named chairman of the organ department in 2004, one of the youngest faculty appointees in the school’s history. He received Juilliard’s prestigious William Schuman Scholar’s Chair in 2007. Jacobs’ 2010 recording of Messiaen’s Livre du Saint Sacrement (Naxos 8.572436–37) was awarded a GRAMMY® in the Best Solo Instrumental category.
