The Boston Globe reviewed Stefan's performance of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, noting that "Jackiw has grown to become one of the most insightful violinists of his generation." The November 2019 performance took place almost exactly 20 years after Stefan's first appearance with the orchestra, which is led by conductor Benjamin Zander. 

The stirring young Stefan Jackiw...made the work his own: not only the beautiful melodies but also the skittish passages in which the tunes seem to be morphing and turning themselves inside out. He rendered them all with seeming ease and remarkable purity of tone, qualities he carried into his encore, the Largo from Bach’s Unaccompanied Violin Sonata in C, which he shaped beautifully.

Stefan Jackiw has risen swiftly in the past decade to challenge the foremost talents of our day - Ehnes, Tezlaff, Kavakos, Hahn - by the quality of his insight and skill. He played Mozart like an angel. The result was about as pure and as close to perfection as music can get.
