Join Tangents Guitar Series in welcoming Daniel Lippel to San Francisco; this is the opening concert of our 2014 season hosted in collaboration with the Center for New Music.
Guitarist Daniel Lippel, called a "modern guitar polymath" (Guitar Review), enjoys a diverse career that ranges through solo and chamber music performances in the U.S. and internationally, innovative commissioning and recording projects, and performances in diverse contexts. He has premiered more than fifty new pieces written for him and his ensembles (most recently John Zorn's Baudelaires for ensemble and Dai Fujikura's Sparking Orbit for electric guitar and electronics), and has recorded many of them on his independent label, New Focus Recordings. His interest in collaboration led to becoming the guitarist for the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) in 2005, and new music quartet Flexible Music in 2003. As a chamber musician, Lippel has performed at the Macau Music Festival (China), Sibelius Academy (Finland), and the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, and been a guest with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, New York New Music Ensemble, and the Cygnus Ensemble among others. Recent recital highlights have been the Cleveland International Guitar Festival at CIM, the Philadelphia Guitar Society. Lippel has worked with many eminent composers including Mario Davidovsky, John Zorn, Magnus Lindberg, Nils Vigeland, and Ursula Mamlok, as well as with several of the most active younger composers on the creation of new works, including Dai Fujikura, Nico Muhly, and Ken Ueno.
