The Boston Globe admires his performanceâ€śnot just punctuality and smoothness of attack but an unerring sense of what kind of attack and in relation to what else. This was so acute and varied and organic that it seemed almost a part of natureâ€?and The Miami Herald describes â€śLipkin is a musicianâ€™s musician with acute insight into phrasingâ€?
