Karol Lipinski violin concerto 1+3 + Impromptu (sort of Caprice for soloviolin)

December 8, 2010 at 4:20 PM

Earlier I uploaded the 2th violin concerto "Concerto Militaire" of the Polish composer Karol Józef Lipinski (1790-1861). Now his 1th and 3th violin concerto and a Caprice-Paganini lookalike Impromptu.1 I get associations with Paganini Caprice 6. The reactions on the 3th vc and the Impromptu were enthousiastic. Someone in Mexico started to practice the Impromptu.

Hi thanks!  We really don't often hear about Lipinski...  (such a virtuoso to have composed that!!!)

Is one of these mvts called "Rondo alla pollaca"?  I have always wanted to hear that again since hearing it on the radio but I never found it. 

I loved that caprice very much!  It made me think of Tartini's devil trill sonata...

Thanks for uploading these!

Hi I have that Rondo alla Polacca but the sheetmusic is not on IMSLP, just like the 4th violin concerto which is as audio available on cd.

Hi, no it's just that I was wondering if it was in those that you sent on this present blog.  Since Lipinsky's music is quite rare (well I think?), it's possibly normal that one won't find all of it easilly on IMSLP... 

Thanks for the info!

The Lipinski works currently (Dec 9, 2010) on IMSLP are:

Concerto militaire, Op.21
Impromptu for Solo Violin (mss, difficult to read)
2 Impromptus for Solo Violin, Op.34
Rondo alla Polacca, Op.7
String Trio No.1, Op.8
String Trio No.2, Op.12
Violin Concerto No.3, Op.24

  Piano reductions of the scores, where appropriate, are provided.

There aren't many string trios in the repertoire, so the two above are useful additions.

I have Rondo alla Polacca op.13 in E major on cd. I think it is different from op.7 rondo alla Polacca, which is on IMSLP.

There is a Stradivari violin named after Lipinski – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipinski_Stradivarius for the story.

Thank you for posting this! I had been unfamiliar with this composer and am glad to know about him. There is so much forgotten 19th-century violin music out there that could really be performed alternatively to our standard Paganinis and Wieniawskis and Vieuxtemps.
