Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. "God lent the world His chosen instrument, whom we called Dinu Lipatti, for too brief a space," said the legendary recording producer Walter Legge of the sublime Romanian pianist, who died aged just 33 in 1950. A musician of poetry, grace and finesse, whose playing was described as 'perfection' by Alfred Cortot, he chose to focus on a carefully defined repertoire.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2015
This key part of Lipatti's small recorded legacy incluees some of the most cherished of all piano recordings. Lipatti's seminal Bach Partita No. 1 sits alongside his supreme Scarlatti, Mozart and Schubert. Timeless.
