“…I find…Time's Dream, to be a thing of rare and unusual beauty…David Lipten manages to combine pitch, interval and harmony in perfect balance with the human voice to create a deeply layered, oddly emotive and expressive sound world…it is…of an intellect touched by the profundity of the written text…I find myself drawn to it over and over again.”

Jean-Yves Duperron of “The Classical Music Sentinel” 

Show of Hands is “dynamic and impactful.”

Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review 

"Tongue & Groove…[featured] John Adams-style riffs in the strings built up in head-bobbing accompaniments that resembled authentic electronic dance music — some passages sounded like something you might actually get down to at a…club."

Joe Cadigan of "San Francisco Classical Voice"


“David Lipten is one of America's finest composers. I have had the distinct pleasure of recording How To and A Widow’s Song for chorus, and was absolutely bowled over by their beauty, craftsmanship, and emotional impact…my New York Virtuoso Singers felt the same. Please consider performing them soon."

Harold Rosenbaum, conductor, New York Virtuoso Singers and Canticum Novum Singers
