"Daniel Lippel is a New York-based guitarist and chamber musician and a doctoral student at MSM, where he studies with David Starobin. He is a fine player, with good musical instincts and a sound technique. He shines brightly in the new works on the "Resonance" release, including Mario Davidovsky's little-heard Synchronisms #10 for guitar and tape, a riveting piece. Besides the Carter, the rest of the works here are by lesser-known composers. Peter Gilbert's Ricochet for guitar and electronics is particularly appealing on a first hearing, with infectious rhythms and delightful coordination between guitar solo and electronics." -- Steven Rings, American Record Guide [July/Aug 2006]
"Daniel Lippel is aRead more New York-based guitarist, who is intensely committed to challenging contemporary music. Much of the music [on Resonance] is extremely demanding for the guitarist and I can't imagine it being better played." -- Goran Forsling, Music Web International [May 2005]
"Lippel's playing on the Davidovsky is intense and well articulated, emphasizing the angular nature of the phrasing. The fine performances and well-balanced program make this disc [Resonance] a standout and definitely worth purchasing." -- James Hanna, Guitar Review #130 [Spring 2005]
"Well this is a treat. Guitarist Daniel Lippel has put together a wonderful CD featuring works by Mario Davidovsky, Nils Vigeland, Elliott Carter, Soonjung Suh, Judah E. Adashi, and Peter Gilbert. Whether he's rippling through Carter or chilling out with Vigeland, Lippel's playing is consistently convincing and leaves little to be desired. He's as technically sound as anyone could possibly want, and his musicality makes everything sound as natural as improvisation. 'Resonance' may be a little difficult to find, but it's definitely worth the search." -- David Salvage, Sequenza21.com [February 14, 2005]

Capturing the narrative.January 23, 2013By Alan L. See All My Reviews"In order for me to connect to contemporary music I find it necessary to identify the frame story. This album demonstrates an ability to present a narrative in each of these pieces."Report Abuse
