  More recently, as a conductor, Jacobs has recorded numerous operas and sacred and secular works of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. His recordings have won numerous awards, including a Grammy Award, Gramophone’s "Record of the Year", the “III Premio Traetta”, and numerous European awards. Jacobs regularly conducts such orchestras and ensembles as Concerto Köln, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, the Freiburger Barockorchester, Nederlands Kamerkoor and RIAS Kammerchor for recordings and concert tours. In 1992, Jacobs was invited to conduct the Berlin State Opera.
