Notes & Reviews:

When profiling the Polish composer and violinist Karol Lipinski (1790-1861), the focus is usually placed on his skills as a performer. Apart from having an incredible virtuoso technique, he had fine achievements as a composer. Somewhat forgotten these days, Lipinski occupies an important place in Polish culture and deserves a broader recognition.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Karol Lipinski loved Italian opera. He began his career in Lvov and ended it at the royal court in Dresden. His six Morceaux de Salon for violin and piano, published in Mainz in 1842, are practically note-for-note transcriptions of Rossini's Soirées Musicales from 1835. The best-known of this set of pieces is 'La Danza', a piece I know from a 1918 Caruso recording and others might know from a piano transcription by Liszt. Lipinski's Variations on Sonnambula recall Paganini in their exploitation of virtuoso violin tricks and treats. Lipinski's Italian-opera-influenced music is delightful. Bartek Niziol holds first prizes in a long list of International competitions (including the Wieniawski Competition and the Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud Competition). He currently teaches at the Hochschule in Bern and is the first violinist of the the Zurich-based Valentin Berlinsky Quartet. He is a marvelous violinist, and this is a :pleasure to hear.
