The prejudice against German music after WWI resulted in an emphasis on the latest French and Russian music of the time, which moulded the language of Jacob's generation. These influences can be heard in Jacob's symphonies, from the regular melodic patterns of Poulenc to the rhythmic eccentricities of early Stravinsky, together with the sonorous tuttis of Elgar, still in Jacob's youth the star in the English firmament.

Symphony No. 1 (1929) Première Recording
Symphony No. 2 in C major (1945)
