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)

Guitarist Dan Lippel gave a precise, sensitive rendition of Leo Brouwer’s 1973 “Parabola,” the Cuban composer at his most modernistic, his heritage only implied by his idiomatic fluency with the instrument.

Matthew Guerrieri (Boston Globe)

"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)
