About

Dinu Lipatti is a unique figure in the pantheon of pianists. His international fame is almost exclusively due to the widespread distribution of a recorded production that was, according to the words of his producer Walter Legge, “small in output but of the purest gold”.

He was not only a miraculous Chopin interpreter, but also an exceptional soloist, here in partnership with Herbert von Karajan and the Philharmonia and Lucerne Festival Orchestras.

The legendary 'Alborada' is the result of a single recording take as Lipatti's terminal illness took hold. It is widely considered to be the best, with only Gilels a close second.
