Jacob Collier is a musical phenomenon. A multi-instrumentalist, singer, arranger, composer and producer, Jacob has been wowing the world with his breathtaking understanding of music and his amazing abilities on many different instruments.
In this edition of Inside Music, Jacob, who is still only 24 years old, introduces a wide array of music including pieces he performed as a solo treble with the English National Opera as well as a track from his brand new album, DJESSE (Vol 1.)
The breadth of Jacob’s musical imagination leads him to some of the classical greats including Bach, Debussy and Schumann, as well as folk song from Bulgaria and jazz pianist Brad Mehldau’s take on a Lennon and McCartney classic.
And at 2 o’clock Jacob delves into the archives of the British Library to reveal his Must Listen piece performed by his grandfather, the violinist Derek Collier.
