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.

Violinist Jennifer Frautschi is still referred to as a "young artist," though she's turning 30 in June. The tag was applicable, she observes, when she performed solo at the Los Angeles Philharmonic's "High School Night" at age 16 -- and, to her amusement, it has stuck. Since then, the Pasadena native has parlayed her studies (at the Colburn School for the Performing Arts and the USC Thornton School of Music, for starters) into a thriving professional career. She and her 1722 Stradivarius violin have appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, toured Belgium and Switzerland, drawn plaudits for a recording of Stravinsky and Ravel, and captured the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant -- previously awarded to Yo-Yo Ma and Joshua Bell.

I was delighted to read about Leila Josefowicz's splendid playing of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in Cerritos with Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields ("A Crowded House . . . and Stage," Sept. 27). But I must say that Marriner was not introducing this exciting young musician to Southern California, as reviewer Daniel Cariaga wrote. Among her prior public performances in the area, I am proud to count her Los Angeles Philharmonic and Hollywood Bowl debuts, performing the Vieuxtemps Concerto No. 5 in September, 1990.

At an age when her contemporaries are giving up their doll collections for fantasies about pop rock stars, Leila Josefowicz nonchalantly discusses the merits of various violin concertos. The 11-year-old virtuosa makes her San Diego Symphony debut tonight performing Eduoard Lalo's "Symphonie Espagnole" in the kickoff of the symphony's SummerPops season. Two months ago, she performed Henryk Wienawski's Second Violin Concerto with the Pacific Symphony in Orange County. "I've played the Wieniawski a lot," explained Josefowicz in a phone interview earlier this month.
