Divine spirituality!

(5 out of 5 stars)

The enormous musical legacy and the gap left by Lipatti will never be filled. This version is one of the finest performances ever made around the epitome of the Romantic Piano Concerto. Lipatti's sound is noble, persuasively eloquent, surrounded of a resplendent and fiery pianism.

On the other hand, the admirable musicality emanated from his prodigious hands seems to hover around the recording hall with this autumn vision about the buy gone years, irreverent impulsiveness, giddy impetuousness, subduing passion are tied with that ethereal poetry and slender lyricism.

You may realize the amorous and beating dialogue between piano and orchestra in the second movement, where the piano literally seduces and is seduced too in this enraptured environment of veiled eroticism. The transition passage toward the finale is organically made, without fireworks: Dinu made that the musical speech conveyed the sentiments and not to the inverse way, the scales and arpeggios would seem to emerge from a web of interweaved feelings but translated into new meanings; this creative process was achieved with magisterial commitment. The mercurial rapture spouts without effort; it's pure Dionysian poetry ; which once more proofs that in art the fervent imagination revitalizes and recreates the thematic material. The incandescent finale possesses bravura and febrile noblesse. Lipatti is far beyond the director who unexplainable silenced the demanded sforzandos of the orchestra in the final code, that would seem to indicate a certain itinsic perversity around the whole result. An opossite approach respect to director Vaclav Neumann, that makes that Ivan Moravec with the Czech Philharmonic achieves the honor place.

The Mozart Piano Concerto in hands of Lipatti acquires a new vision, a notable approach that contributes still more to enrich the score. The final result is revealing, played with articulated accuracy and sumptuous display with sumptuous lyric exuberance.

A must-but for the newcomer listener and the hard music dilettantes.
