Notes and Editorial Reviews

Even though he died in 1950 at just 33, any list of the greatest pianists of the 20th century would have to include Dinu Lipatti. In 2008, EMI issued a seven-disc set that brought together all of his original studio sessions with some later discovered material. Now, to mark this year’s centenary of Lipatti’s birth, Profil has extended that collection to a dozen discs that cover the whole of his career.

All the famous performances are here – two versions of the Schumann Piano Concerto, from 1948 and 1950, still as good as any on disc; Mozart’s C major Concerto K467, with Herbert von Karajan conducting, from August 1950, which was the last time Lipatti played a concerto in public; and a wide variety of solo Bach and Chopin,
Read more composers who were the mainstays of his recital repertoire. The recordings made during the Second World War, mostly in Lipatti’s home city of Bucharest, are some of the most fascinating.

Even those who have assiduously collected Lipatti performances will surely find something they haven’t heard before; anyone who has never heard his playing has a unique treat in store.
