Washington Post reviews Stefan's Kennedy Center recital

In May 2014, Stefan returned in recital to the Kennedy Center, presented by Washington Performing Arts. The Washington Post raved: "Jackiw threw himself into the music as if nothing else mattered and turned in the kind of playing you always hope for at a concert but rarely hear. It was an absolutely spectacular performance, run through with urgent and often unsettling beauty... [Jackiw's] Mozart had a rare and wonderful sense of intimacy as well, as if he were having a private conversation with pianist Anna Polonsky, and we in the audience were just listening in" (read complete review here). Stefan and Anna will repeat the program at the Rockport Music Festival in June.
