Ask us what we would choose for our 'Desert Island Discs' and we would immediately reply, "Radu Lupu's Schubert recordings"! Even better is to hear the pianist perform live. The concerts he gives become fewer by the year, so don't miss this opportunity to hear him.
For the few who don't yet know him, Radu Lupu is one of the most discerning pianists of his generation. Spiritual, meditative, contemplative, intimist and mystical are among the adjectives constantly used to describe him. Lupu, the philosopher. Lupu, the magician of sound. Virtually ascetic, with an extreme economy of movement, he allows the piano to sing. Above all, he brings a salutary repose and an enormous feeling of freedom to his playing. His rubati are breathtaking, his palette of sound colour infinite. When he plays Schubert, time appears to stand still. His Debussy transports the listener to another universe.
Radu Lupu - the perfect antidote to our hectic existence.
