Pianist Seymour Lipkin Plays Ludwig Van Beethoven

Over the past two generations, Seymour Lipkin has been hailed by connoisseurs and revered by his colleagues as a pianist of rare cogency, authority and musical wisdom. Studying at the prestigious Curtis Institute, Mr. Lipkin developed his immaculate virtuosity as a prize pupil of Rudolf Serkin and Mieczslaw Howszowski. At age 19 he gave his career an auspicious jump-start by winning the Rachmaninoff competition, astounding the judges with his insightful probing interpretation of Beethoven’s knotty, enigmatic Op. 101 Sonata.

Mr. Lipkin went on to appear with all of America’s “top five” orchestras – the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, the Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago Symphony Orchestras – also performing with many other major ensembles, such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Seattle Symphony Orchestras and the Florida Philharmonic. Legendary conductors who engaged and reengaged him as a concerto collaborator include Serge Koussevitzky, Fritz Reiner, Charles Munch, Leonard Bernstein, Eugene Ormandy , William Steinberg and Christoph von Dohnanyi.
