Lipatti's Barcarolle

Last week, one of my drawing students who teaches piano performance at a local university mentioned a concert she's planning that will include Chopin's Barcarolle in F# Major.

I immediately started digging for my favorite recording of that piece by Dinu Lipatti.  We listened through the rest of class.

Chopin: Waltzes lit up my childhood with Lipatti's sparkling runs and ornamentation, and the sweet timbre of his piano.  A great recording for dancing around in your room — get into the groove of Lipatti's effortless interpretation.  His dynamics and sense of timing will move through your heart and lift your spirit.
