Polish Paganini Karol Lipiński

In 2020 we celebrate the 230th anniversary of Karol Lipiński’s birth!

Karol Lipiński who is mostly called “Polish Paganini” built a distinguished career in the 19th century. In Vienna, he met Luis Spohr and, in Piacenza, in 1818 he performed together with Nicolo Paganini whom he competed against to win the title of the best violinist. In Paris, it was Chopin who helped him organize a concert. From 1839, he stayed in Dresden where he took up a position of a concertmaster at the Court Orchestra. That was where he played with Ferenc Liszt, cooperated with Richard Wagner and made friends with Robert Schumann. Karol Lipiński was one of the first before Fryderyk Chopin, who made the polish music culture worldwide known.

Remy Franck

Heute ist Lipinski kaum noch bekannt, und so ist denn diese CD auch eine richtige Entdeckung. Nicht nur das: es ist eine überaus wertvolle Entdeckung.

Die beiden Streichtrios sind originell komponiert, mit hoch virtuosen Passagen sowie expressiv-lyrischen Momenten. Voytek Proniewicz, Adam Roszkowski und Jan Roszkowski spielen sehr rhetorisch und bringen die Musik Lipinskis wirkungsvoll zur Geltung.

Jozef Lipinski was first a friend and later a rival of Paganini. He was known all over Europe but, unfortunately, his music is nowadays almost forgotten. So, we must welcome these excellent performances and recommend them to everybody who is fond of chamber music.

„À la fin, on entendra le fameux Nocturne en mi bémol majeur de Chopin. L’ambiance de l’œuvre hésite dans cette prestation, avec Wojciech Proniewicz comme soliste, entre douceur et mélancolie. La sonorité de son violon pourrait être un peu plus dense, toutefois on se contentera de sa musicalité, mettant en valeur la beauté et la limpidité de la composition.”

The newest review of Proniewicz’s Franz Liszt album in The Strad Magazine!

Edward Bhesania

…Proniewicz’s high-lying harmonics in the fourth movement are both floated and secure. The single-movement Grand duo concertant, closing the disc, is a paraphrase on a popular romance: Proniewicz’s lyrical gift comes into play here, with plenty of charm. Both players show their mettle in the Tarantella-like variation and its ensuing Animato marziale with playing of clarity and agility. © 2015 The Strad

The review of Proniewicz’s Franz Liszt album in Gramophone!

Jeremy Nicholas

…Here and in the paraphrase of Liszt’s own setting of Lenau’s poem ‘Die drei Zigeuner’ (…) the pinpoint ensemble and dynamic shading of this duo is exemplary.

The relatively small amount of chamber music that Liszt did write turns up infrequently on disc. This one, with its two fine protagonists, might encourage others to explore these gems from his seemingly bottomless treasure chest. © 2015 Gramophone

ResMusiqa 10 février 2015

Toutes ces pièces montrent une musique volubile, extravertie, colorée et un tant soit peu bavarde. Les deux musiciens retenus pour cette défense s’avèrent excellents grâce à leurs phrasés souples et leurs sonorités franches associés à un flux très assuré. A conseiller dans l’optique de compléter une approche plus fouillée du personnage central du mouvement romantique européen.

The Classical Music Guide

„(…) Over the years I have collected as much of Liszt’s chamber music as I could find. I am continually fascinated by the genius of the great Hungarian. The present recital is one of the most astounding and well recorded of any I have ever heard. Not knowing either the violinist or pianist, this co-artist pairing is incomparable. The balance between the violin and piano is exceptional, vivid, clear, and staggering. No doubt the acoustics Witold Lutoslawski Concert Studio of the Polish Radio in Warsaw added substantially to the quality of this recording. After hearing the over 70-minute disc, I was clammoring for more. Having visited Poland a couple of years ago, particularly Warsaw, I want to go back!

Add this disc to your catalogue of wants. You will have a feast of great playing that stays with one long after hearing it. This is NOT unsubtantial music by any stroke of the imagination. •

„Best known for his remarkable piano, vocal and orchestral works, Liszt’s chamber music is relatively unfamiliar but is highly entertaining, tending to avoid the heavier romanticism of his more extensive pieces. This sparkling new recording brings together two star performers”
