A consumer comment states it best: For the students who studied directly with Arnold Jacobs, “Portrait of an Artist” will take you back to his studio, sitting right next to him. This excellent collection of lectures (lessons) and demonstrations are a fantastic embodiment of Arnold Jacobs’ concepts and teachings. It is certainly a must for any music performer or educator. From the samples of CSO performances at the end of this CD to the practice tapes, the music on this CD is truly inspirational.
