In collaboration with the Aspen Music Festival and School, Salida Aspen Concerts will present its second concert of the 43rd season of classical music concerts with a viola recital by Avery Fisher Career Grant winner violist Matthew Lipman.

Lipman’s viola recital will be performed at 7:30 p.m., July 13, at the Salida High School Auditorium, located at 26 Jones Ave.

It will be played without intermission. Prior to the concert, there will be a pre-concert talk with Lipman.

A native of Chicago, 27-year-old violist Matthew Lipman received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the Julliard School of Music in New York City.

He performs internationally as a chamber musician with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. He has been a top prize winner of several viola national and international viola competitions.

Lipman is recognized as one of the world’s leading young musicians. He was the only violist featured on WFMT Chicago’s list of “30 Under 30” of the world’s top classical musicians.

Making his first visit to Salida, Lipman will be playing a very difficult program when he takes the stage for a performance of three unaccompanied works for viola.

He will be performing the Partita No. 2 for Unaccompanied Violin in D minor, BWV 1004  by J.S. Bach, Sonata for Solo Viola, Op. 31, No. 4 by Paul Hindemith and  Sonata for Solo Viola by György Ligeti.

The box office opens at 6:30 p.m., and the recital also features a pre-concert discussion at 6:45 p.m. 

Tickets may be purchased for $20.

Students are admitted free with an accompanying adult who may purchase one discounted ticket for $10 at the door.

The concert will be followed by a reception featuring homemade cookies, punch and a chance to meet Lipman.
