Matthew Lipman, viola

Recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2015, American violist Matthew Lipman has been hailed by the New York Times for his “rich tone and elegant phrasing.” He released his debut recording the same year of Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante with Rachel Barton Pine, Sir Neville Marriner, and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields to critical acclaim and will debut as soloist with the Minnesota Orchestra in the 2016–2017 season. Lipman is regularly heard in recital at venues across the country, including the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., and has performed at Alice Tully Hall and Wigmore Hall with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center as a member of CMS Two. A top-prize winner of the Primrose and Tertis International Competitions, he completed his studies at the Juilliard School as a Kovner Fellow with Heidi Castleman, Misha Amory, and Steven Tenenbom. He performs on a 1700 Goffriller viola, on loan from the RBP Foundation.
