Radu Lupu Chicago Symphony Royal Philharmonic Frankfurt Radio Symphony

After winning the Leeds International Piano competition in 1969, Radu Lupu went on to become one of the most admired and respected classical pianists of his generation. He was noted for his unique blend of sensitivity and musical insight and was heard frequently at concert halls throughout the world. Lupu made relatively few recordings for an artist of his eminence; therefore, the live performances presented here in our Volume 5 are of particular interest: Gershwin from Frankfurt, March 2, 1973; the world première of André Tchaikowsky's Piano Concerto, London, October 28, 1975; Beethoven's 2nd concerto from Chicago, January 2, 1978; Haydn piano sonata from London, September 1988; Brahms and Schubert from a recital at Tokyo's Shinjuku Culture Center, October 1980.
