He has recorded 9 well received by international music press Compact Discs, released by Acte Préalable, Dux, Musiques Suisses, Tactus, Vermeer and Warner/Polskie Nagrania labels. His interest in forgotten or rarely performed repertory led him to record World Premieres of such composers like Sándor Veress, Gino Gorini, René de Boisdeffre and Roman Palester.
A dedicated chamber musician, Jakub has collaborated, among others, with acclaimed violinists Tomasz Tomaszewski and Dejan Bogdanovich, violists Jodi Levitz and Morgan O’Shaughnessey, cellists Bartosz Koziak and Luca Fiorentini, flutists Ginevra Petrucci and Carlo Tamponi, clarinetists Ludmila Peterkova and Vincenzo Paci, and ensembles like the Duo Viennese (Paweł Zalejski and Monika Hager-Zalejski) and the Guadagnini String Quartet.
Contemporary music is another field of Jakub’s interest. He took part in the premiere performances of works written by Giovanni Bietti, Alessandra Ciccaglioni, Federico Gardella, Ardian Halimi, Katarzyna Kwiecień-Długosz, Filippo Perocco, Marcin Stańczyk and Alex Stein. Krzysztof Meyer expressed himself about the performance of his Cello Sonata op. 99 recorded by Izabela Buchowska and Jakub Tchorzewski in the following way: “Your recording is excellence in all respects. It is exactly how I imagined my Sonata while writing it.”
