Notes and Editorial Reviews

March 2017 will see the 100th anniversary of the birth of famous Romanian pianist Dinu Lipatti (March 19, 1917 – December 2, 1950). On this occasion we will release a 3CD budget box including his Concerto album with Herbert von Karajan, a CD of works by Chopin, Liszt, Ravel, Brahms and Enescu, and his Last Recital in Besançon, recorded only two and a half months before his tragic death in 1950. All three CDs are also in the Icon box dedicated to the pianist, but the Besançon Recital included here benefits from a 24-bit/96kHz remastering made for a Japanese SACD edition in 2011.
