Dinu Lipatti plays Mozart Sonata No. 8 in A Minor, K.310 - studio recording


Dinu Lipatti's recording from July 9, 1950 of Mozart's Sonata No. 8 in A Minor, K.310. The recording was part of Lipatti's valedictory studio recordings for EMI, made at Radio Geneve in July 1950 when the record company sent a van of equipment to record the ill pianist as he enjoyed a brief remission from the illness that would eventually kill him. This particular recording took place on a Sunday that was particularly productive in the 10 days of recordings from July 3 to 12. Lipatti had recorded the Bach Partita in the morning and would record some more Chopin waltzes in the evening after having completed this Sonata. Lipatti's dramatic emphasis and strong sense of lyricism brings tremendous pathos to this reading, which has remained a classic 60 years since it was first recorded.
