What they are saying

“Mr. Lipman demonstrated a rich tone and elegant phrasing in the slow opening movement, with its elegiac, wandering melodies, and a fleet-fingered technique in the vivacious second movement.”

The New York Times

“splendid technique and musical sensitivity...a warm, burnished, singing tone... Mark well Matthew Lipman's name: You'll be hearing a lot more of him in the years to come.”

The Chicago Tribune

“Matthew Lipman commands attention with his authoritative phrasing and attractive sound...most impressive, well recorded and lovingly presented recital.”


“Throughout the recital Lipman’s playing is warm-toned and expressive, as well as agile and focused.”

Gramophone Magazine

“remarkable and vibrantly deep, chocolate tone.”

Audiophile Audition

“superb: in particular, the violist Matthew Lipman, who did such a fine job of negotiating the center of the music...”
