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?

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.
