Daniel Lippel, an exciting soloist and a key member of the International Contemporary Ensemble, plays above, among and alongside his colleagues, fluttering and roaring in works that allude to Mr. Fujikura’s Japanese heritage while also asserting his cosmopolitan style.

Steve Smith (New York Times Arts Beat)

"Lippel manages this quite well. “Aufenthalt” storms angrily, “Die Post” dances jauntily (but doesn’t fail to catch the note of despair in poet Wilhelm Müller’s lonely lover), and “Ständchen”is simply irresistible. Lippel’s is a strong performance that will reward the listener."

Ken Keaton (Classical Voice of North America)

"Mario Davidovsky's Synchronisms #10 for guitar and tape was performed with exceptional lucidity by Daniel Lippel."

Mark Barry (Pittsburgh Tribune Review)

"Abandoned Time gives us another chance to hear modern guitar polymath, Dan Lippel, this time backed by the stellar International Contemporary Ensemble. Lippel and ICE put their hearts into this project, delivering expressive, detailed, and precise interpretations."

Guitar Review (Ian Antonio)

“These performances definitely have a live feel, though there's no sense of the facile- only depth caught on the wing. Sometimes Lippel dwells indulgently in the moment, as in the Grave of the A minor Sonata or the Sarabande of the A major Suite; at other times the music is allowed to flow naturally, as in the final movements of those works. Looseness and tension are fluently articulated within a flexible, expressive framework. An impressive release, then. Not a definitive statement- nor is it meant to be. Full marks to Lippel for daring to show a little humanity”

Gramophone (William Yeomen)
