The record was nominated to International Classic Music Awards (ICMA 2019).
"Lipinski was first a friend and later a rival of Paganini. He was known all over Europe but, unfortunately, his music is nowadays almost forgotten. So, we must welcome these excellent performances and recommend them to everybody who is fond of chamber music."
Pizzicato, October 2018
„Le premier violon, Voytek Proniewicz – Violinist est sensationnel. Son exécution est celle d’un grand virtuose. Il est complètement absorbé dans la musique, très à l’écoute de sa propre sonorité, parfois délicate ou d’une profondeur enivrante. La démesure et le charme. Chaudement recommandé.”
Le Parnasse Musical, September 2018
Although Polish-born virtuoso and composer Karol Lipinski embraced the innovations of Paganini and other 19th-century virtuosos, he disdained 'empty' technique devoid of musical depth, preferring the artistic ethos of Spohr, Tartini and Viotti. Described as 'lyrical Slavic folk tunes with elements of the ballad', the expertly crafted G minor and A major string trios are notable for their warmly expressive themes to go along with the bravura runs and doublestopping heard in the primo violin part.
