Minnesota Orchestra Concertmaster Erin Keefe and violist Matthew Lipman gave a spectacular performance of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“remarkable and vibrantly deep, chocolate tone.”
“superb: in particular, the violist Matthew Lipman, who did such a fine job of negotiating the center of the music...”
