Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Luiza Borac is the most dedicated champion of music from her native Romania, recognized with a BBC Music Magazine Award for her artistry and advocacy of the piano canon of Georges Enescu. She now turns to another compatriot, best known as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century: Dinu Lipatti. The rarities that Luiza has unearthed for 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."

BBC Music Magazine
A fabulously gifted young pianist.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Everything Lipatti wrote displays his remarkable natural gifts. His skillful musicianship was apparently fully formed from the outset. This is clear in the earliest-written piece here. The music radiates fresh, romantic ardor - Lipatti gave it a motto: "Music is the Language of the Gods" - and it's amazingly assured, full of pianistic felicities, shapely and lusciously harmonized melodies, and well wrought counterpoint. Luiza Borac and her collaborators will explore more of it. Better recordings of the marvelous Three Romanian Dances (for two pianos) and the Symphonie Concertante (for two pianos and string orchestra) as well as the colorful orchestral suite titled The Gypsies are much needed. These are exciting works filled with grand tunes and adventurous originality from a precocious and hugely gifted musician.

New York Times, 26th February 2014
This two-disc set of solo and orchestral works, played with commitment by the pianist Luiza Borac, offers an intriguing traversal of his compositional aesthetic and influences.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
Borac plays with technical assurance and the utmost sensitivity. The London recording of the Concertino is a litle lacking in intimacy; the Berlin solo recordings have a church acoustic that blurs the textures, but more often enhances the beauty of Lipatti's writing and Borac's playing.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
While reasonably rich in passionately youthful outings this programme is worth every penny of its asking price, not only for its fine recording qualities and Luiza Borac's superb playing, but for undiscovered gems - in particular the amazing Fantaisie, as well as the fascinating Concertino.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
Borac breezes with the same breezy confidence as Lipatti.
