A standard critical line concerning young virtuosos has to do with the lopsided distribution of technical expertise and ease of expression. Violinist Isabella Lippi, a 27-year-old wonder, suffered no such imbalance in her recital at Pepperdine's Raitt Recital Hall on Sunday afternoon, ably accompanied by pianist John Novacek. Yes, Lippi projects a controlled urgency and an exacting sense of purpose with virtually every phrase she plays, but this comes not at the expense of emotional fluidity.

Violinist Isabella Lippi was 21 when we first saw her, making her Orange County debut with the Pacific Symphony led by Kate Tamarkin at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in 1990. Since then, her local appearances have been few. She served as a guest concertmaster for the Pacific in 1996 when the orchestra was engaged in a search to fill the job (later taken by Kevin Connolly, who resigned after one season). She also played that year with the Glendale Symphony.

Isabella Lippi may have "the gift" for playing the violin, but that doesn't mean she cares much for practicing. The 21-year-old musician, yet another of the performers drawing praise from critics and audiences in what is turning out to be a golden age of young violinists, said her mother had to push her to practice. "But everyone's mother has to do that," she added. "I enjoy playing the violin, but not practicing it." The Chicago-born Lippi makes her Orange County debut Saturday, Aug.

In what is turning out to be a golden age of young violinists, critics and audiences are expressing enthusiasm over Isabella Lippi, 21, who will make her county debut with the Pacific Symphony in a Mozart program led by Kate Tamarkin on Saturday at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre. Born in Chicago, Lippi started studying violin when she was 6. "I guess my parents noticed that I loved listening to music on the radio," she said on the phone last week from the Encore Music Camp in Hudson, Ohio, where she was finishing six weeks of classes and workshops.

Anyone looking for musical fire would have found it at Royce Hall, where violinist Isabella Lippi and the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra gave a sizzling account of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. With almost frenzied determination, the 20-year-old USC student brought burning intensity and fervent passion to the familiar work Sunday afternoon. She exhibited flawless bow control, dazzling listeners with her technical polish and her clean, articulate playing. Her sound, vibrant and penetrating, easily filled the hall, yet she could also produce spellbinding pianissimos.

Imperiled orchestras are nothing new these days, as anyone who has followed the travails of San Diego's orchestra knows. In a tough era for the symphonic muse, we're understanding about veering away from protocol, as when the Glendale Symphony showed up with reduced orchestral forces, and made an unabashed plea for cash from the stage before intermission Saturday at the Glendale's Alex Theatre.

The chirping of a wayward cricket added perky accompaniment Saturday night when Canadian pianist Bernadene Blaha and violinist Isabella Lippi joined principal members of the Pacific Symphony to finish this season's Chamber Music Series at Laguna Beach High School. During the opening work, Mozart's Oboe Quartet, K. 370, the cricket conveyed more energy than the performers.

Roth Hall, site of the first presentation of this season's In the Music Room series, sounds better than it looks. The spartan venue at Crossroads School in Santa Monica is a low-tech space, by default rather than design, that seats about 100 people and is marked by exposed ventilation ducts and an absence of decoration. As a room for hearing chamber music, however, it does its job in terms of clarity and sonic weight.

Figuratively speaking, pianist John Novacek assumed center stage for a performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 12 in A on Saturday for the second concert of this season's Pacific Symphony Chamber Music Series. Literally, however, he sat to the rear of center in Laguna Beach High School's Artists' Theatre, behind his five accompanists.
