Lipkind Plays Schubert · Tonhalle Zürich · April 8th, 2017 At 7:30PM · Triosatz, Arpeggione, String Quintet · Violino Basso Premiere

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) [...] a recognizably unique sound, captivating in its clarity of musical thought as well as its instrumental power and flair. [...] command of style on behalf of all interpreters which however never lead to an academic approach or became a purpose in itself for these full blooded musicians. Each of them an internationally sought-after soloist [...] technically outstanding [...] they played the whole program from memory seated as close to each other as the bow movement allowed [...] The result is most impressive all around."

Cellist Gavriel Lipkind comes back to the Tonhalle on April 8th, 2017, with an exposing intimate Schubert-journey. He spent the last five years performing Schubert with his closest musical friends: The violinist Artiom Shishkov, the cellists Dongkyun An and Stefan Hadjiev and his wife the violinist Anna Lipkind.


Triosatz *
B-flat-Major D. 471

Arpeggione Sonata
A-minor D. 821
(arranged by G. Lipkind for a string quartet accompaniment)


String Quintet *
C-Major D. 956

* Lipkind will perform the viola part (in the trio and quintet) on an instrument he developed in recent years: The violino basso. This program is a premiere-showcase of the violin basso.

Gavriel Lipkind about the Violin Basso:

" [...] The role of the violino basso in this program is not to replace the cello but rather to fill in the gap between the violin and the cello with an alternative to the modern viola. The honest and transparent voice of the violino basso offers a wonderful Schubertian "Altus". Ironically, in the Arpeggione Sonata — a piece that was written for an instrument that is a marriage between cello, viola, and guitar — I choose to play the cello for its wider dynamic range, the instrumental bravura of the cello transcription and the more contrasting dialogue with the accompanying violins. I can't wait to play this program in the Tonhalle".
