2015 Avery Fischer Career Grant recipient Matthew Lipman recently released his Cedille label debut with Ascent, an album featuring, in the artist's words, "music enraptured by flights of fantasy," including world-premiere recordings of Dmitri Shostakovich's recently discovered Impromptu for Viola and Piano, Op. 33, and Clarice Assad's Metamorfose, which Lipman commissioned. This imaginative album consisting of improvisational works for viola and piano was created as a loving tribute to his late mother and includes York Bowen's Phantasy for Viola and Piano, Op. 54; Robert Schumann's Märchenbilder (Fairy Tale Pictures), Op. 113; Garth Knox's Fuga libre; and the first-ever recording on viola of Hollywood composer Franz Waxman's popular violin showpiece, Carmen Fantasie.

Spokane PR Classical Music host - James Tevenan sat down with ML to discuss the recording. Listen to the attached file.
