Romanian classical pianist Dinu Lipatti was arguably the greatest pianist of the 20th century. Less known he is also a composer , his own music is beyond doubt worth hearing. This two-disc set feature a number of world premiere recordings including Lipatti s first Piano Sonata, an arrangement of Albeniz s Navarra, and the complex Fantasie. The player Luiza Borac is the most dedicated champion of music from her native Romania, she made her name (and gained a BBC Music Magazine Award in 2007) with her recordings of her great compatriot George Enescu. On this recording, Borac plays with technical assurance and the utmost sensitivity, enhancing the beauty of Lipatti’s melodic writing.
