Daniel Lippel (ICE; New Focus Recordings) and Aidan Plank @ BOP STOP

This evening we pair two very creative musicians, Aidan Plank on bass and Daniel Lippel on Guitar. Daniel is the guitarist with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), New Focus Recordings, and Mice Parade. The evening will feature solo and duo performances of original music.

Guitarist Daniel Lippel is active as a soloist, chamber musician, and recording artist. Recent performing highlights include a solo tour of Germany, as well as recitals at the Cleveland Institute of Music’s Guitar Weekend festival, Istanbul’s Gitar Café, at Bowdoin College in Maine, and at the Univesity of Wisconsin at Eau-Claire. As a chamber musician, Lippel has performed on the Macau International Music Festival in China, the Musica Nova Festival in Helsinki, the Darmstadt Festival of New Music in Germany, and Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival at Alice Tully Hall. In October of 2009, he played the banjo concertino part in the American Premiere of H.K. Gruber’s Busking with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. Other notable appearances include Gyorgy Kurtag’s Grabstein fur Stephan for guitar and orchestra with ICE at the grand opening of EMPAC in Troy, N.Y., chamber performances at the Andy Warhol Museum, the Kennedy Center, Carnegie’s Zankel and Weill Halls, and the Monadnock, Cooperstown, Greenwich, and Manchester chamber music festivals.

A native of Oberlin, Ohio, bassist Aidan Plank enjoys performing a diverse range of music throughout Northern Ohio. He has studied with bassist-composer David Morgan as well as with Kevin Switalski of the Cleveland Orchestra, and is a graduate of Cleveland State University. His performances range from collaborations with Dan Wall, Joe Lovano, Judi Silvano, Joe Maneri, Janis Siegel, and Frankie Avalon to the modern period-instrument premiere of Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer’s Le Pouvoir de l’Amour (1743) at Oberlin College and the world premiere of Randall Woolf and Robin Stranahan’s ‘pop-up’ opera, Frozen Community, produced by Real Time Opera in 2013. In addition to his work with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, Aidan can currently be heard exploring duo improvisation with guitarist Daniel Lippel of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE).
