On October 24, at 1:00 PM, the Hudson Valley Music Club will present the first professional concert of its 92nd season. Violist Matthew Lipman, accompanied by Yi-Fang Huang, piano, will perform works by Bach, Kodaly, Prokofiev, Knox and Hindemith.
The recipient of a 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, American violist Matthew Lipman has been hailed by the New York Times for his “rich tone and elegant phrasing” and by the Chicago Tribune for his “splendid technique and musical sensitivity”. As one of the most sought after and promising proponents of his instrument, Mr. Lipman’s engagements as soloist have included the Juilliard, Minnesota Orchestra, Grand Rapids Symphony, Wisconsin Chamber, Ars Viva Symphony, Montgomery Symphony, Capital City Symphony and Southwest Symphony Orchestras, and as recitalist, the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C. and the ShortGrass Festival in New Mexico in halls across America including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Alice Tully Hall and the Morgan Library in New York. His debut recording of the Mozart Sinfonia Concertante with violinist Rachel Barton Pine, Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields was released by Avie Records in January 2015 to critical acclaim and skyrocketed to #3 on the Billboard Classical chart. The Daily Telegraph declared that “Chicago-born viola-player Matthew Lipman, still in his early 20s and gifted with poise and a warmth of timbre, ideally complements the allure of the set [of Mozart concertos] as a whole.”
Yi-Fang Huang, a native of Taiwan, received both Bachelor and Master of Music degrees at the Juilliard School as a pupil of Martin Canin, and Doctor of Musical Arts degree with Susan Starr at Rutgers University. As soloist, chamber music musician and collaborative pianist, Ms. Huang has performed in venues including Walt Disney Concert Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Louvre Museum, Grenoble Museum and National Concert Hall in Taiwan.Ms. Huang currently serves as faculty at The Juilliard School, The Perlman Music Program, North American Viola Institute, and is the founder/faculty at NAVI Collaborative Piano Workshop. Also a devoted viola teacher, her mentors include Heidi Castleman and Steven Tenenbom.
