Ingrid Jacoby is a Steinway Artist and a member of the Steinway Hall of Fame. In the United States, she joined Jessye Norman and Shirley Maclaine in receiving a Career Life Award from The National Society of Arts and Letters. Ingrid Jacoby comes from a family with deep musical roots; she is directly descended from the pianist, composer, and Prussian nobleman, Prince Louis Ferdinand (1772 – 1806), to whom Beethoven dedicated his Third Piano Concerto. Prince Louis Ferdinand was the nephew of Frederick the Great, himself the composer of the famous theme which Bach used in his sublime Musical Offering.
