Dinu Lipatti's pianism represents the highest level of technique fully at the service of his profound interpretative insight. There is a poise in his playing that naturally emerges from his intention to serve not only the composers and their works but in fact Music itself, made possible by the transcendent technique that serves his vision. Whatever composer, whatever work he played, the execution is seamless, insightful, and imbued with feeling and meaning. The fact that his playing still has universal appeal and continues to mesmerize listeners around the world several decades after his death speaks to the incredible power of his playing.

And on the path of that ray, a white petal, appearing as if from nowhere, floated gently down and mystically joining her three sisters - and lo! all four of them were now the magical pyramid of the Romanian soul. And their name is Eminescu, Brâncuși, Enescu, Lipatti.

There are many truly great pianists out there, and I admire them profoundly. For me, however, it is always Lipatti I come back to; every piece he plays is for me ‘the truth’ - the definitive performance that will never be outshone.
‘I have made a few minor discoveries during my research, but for me the best is that Lipatti holds such a dear place in the hearts of so many music lovers, decades after his death. For the precious recordings he left us, he deserves the greatest reverence.’
