Concert Pianist Seymour Lipkin

&quot;Schubert...had a way of making us feel that the heavens just opened up and the music poured out.&quot; <b>--Seymour Lipkin</b>

Join Jill Pasternak when she interviews Seymour Lipkin - esteemed concert pianist, and dedicated faculty member at Curtis and Juilliard.

Mr. Lipkin's recent release of the complete piano sonatas, impromptus, moments musicaux, and the Wanderer Fantasy of Franz Schubert, available in three volumes of two CDs in each, is receiving rave reviews. Mr. Lipkin is extremely passionate about this music. "In the solo piano music of Schubert," he explains, "the depth and range of feeling are enormous: there is ebullient joy, deepest grief, other-worldly serenity. There is immense power and exquisite delicacy; there are waltzes and there are earthquakes."
