Dinu Lipatti is one of those almost mythical figures of the piano cosmos. His star shone briefly, but with incredible intensity and its lingering aura threatened at times to obscure the view of his playing. Conductor Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) was repeatedly quoted: It was no longer piano playing, it was music, released from all earthly weight, music in its purest form, in a harmony that can be imparted only by one who was no longer of this world. Karajan is Lipattis partner in the 1948 recording of Robert Schumanns A minor Concerto, widely hailed as the everlasting benchmark recording, which is correspondingly included in this CD Edition. The year 2017 marks the centenary of Lipattis birth, and at the same time the 67th anniversary of his death and his life, all these years later, is still just as fascinating.

It is quite obvious that this 12-CD set attempts to include all of Lipatti’s extant recordings, and in this regard, it has largely accomplished its aim. All the EMI recordings are included, plus all of his concerto recordings. Many rarities are included too. Here is a list of recordings in Lipatti’s discography that do not appear in this box set:
1) Chopin Waltz No. 2 op.34 No.1 recorded in Bucharest in 1941.
2) Three pieces recorded on 24 May 1947: Beethoven Cello Sonata No. 3 op.69 (I: Allegro ma non tanto; Bach Cello Sonata in D (II. Andante); Chopin Nocturne in C sharp minor.

Apart from a few studio recordings in the pre-war years, Lipatti’s main commercial recording career started only in 1947 and produced many memorable records well-known to his admirers. That is why those private recordings made during the war years have attracted much attention, but unfortunately were issued by a small company, Archiphon, with a limited circulation and they apparently also went out of print soon after being issued. Here is a chance to get these rare recordings if you missed it first time round.
