Dr. Igor Lipinski, is Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Oklahoma. Originally from Tarnow, Poland he came to Buffalo as a high school student to participate in the play “Paderewski’s Children”, written and directed by Theatre Professor Kazimierz Braun, at the University at Buffalo.
A graduate of the Eastman School of Music in Rochester he performed the “Paderewski Concerto” with the Buffalo Philharmonic, while still a Conservatory student. Igor has performed with the Rochester Philharmonic, Cape Cod Symphony, Butler County Symphony, among many others. In addition to his teaching career and an active performing concert tour he has lectured on “Reimagining The Piano Recital: Creative Ideas To Engage Your Audience”. Lipinski unified two of his lifetime passions, classical music and magic, in a unique recital program “Piano Illusions”, for which he won the WQXR Classical Comedy Contest at Caroline’s on Broadway. The halt of his concert tour due to Covid-19 inspired him to start his own record label, Vanishing Records. He released his first album Alchemy for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.
