Malcolm Lipkin Piano Music

He followed his own path steadily and regardless of passing trends to create a rewarding body of work of impeccable integrity which largely awaits rediscovery – Paul Conway

Malcolm Lipkin (1932-2017) is a fascinating and much neglected composer, whose work is gradually being rediscovered. His works include three symphonies and a significant body of chamber and solo instrumental music. Lipkin’s style is characterised by a very distinctive tonality and precision of expression. He was strongly influenced by history, literature and religion, drawing inspiration from a wide range of references.

Nathan is honoured to have been asked to collaborate with Lyrita Recorded Edition and the Lipkin Foundation on a CD of Lipkin’s solo piano works. The disc will contain the Eight Nocturnes for solo piano and the final two of his Piano Sonatas, numbers 5 and 6.

The CD is currently scheduled for release in early 2023. Further updates will appear here as they are available.
