It is such sad news to hear that Radu Lupu died earlier this month.

By all accounts he became increasingly reclusive, and I’m especially saddened that I never had an opportunity to be in the audience for one of his concerts. Did anyone in the community here hear him play live?

His recordings, however, are a treasure: never showy, but played with such natural, appealing musicality.  They sound just right.

Here’s two of my favourites.  Both Schubert - the Impromptus, of course:

And this exquisite performance  of the F minor Fantasy with Murray Perahia:

Which are your particular favourites?

The collaboration with Perahia has long been a favourite of mine too.
