1001 Classical recordings you must hear before you die (1801-1850)
'an irreplaceable treasure.' Gramophone
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 issue a 3CD collection 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 (5099920731823) but the Besançon Recital included here benefits from a 24-bit/96kHz remastering made for a Japanese SACD edition in 2011.
