Dinu Lipatti‘s performance of Mozart‘s Sonata in A Minor, K310, at his last public recital, which took place at the Besançon International Music Festival on September 16, 1950. Included in this video are some photographs taken at the rehearsal in the Salle de Parlement that morning, as well as some pictures from the actual performance which were taken by Michel Meusy (who is at the time of this writing 102 years old). Also included is a previously unpublished picture of his hands which (along with all Besancon pictures) is featured in the upcoming documentary ‘Le Recital de Besançon’ on Sunless Films, directed by Philippe Roger.

    • Oh Valerie, you just can’t imagined how glad I am that you enjoy his music. I do too, and I am thankful that You Tube has such a selection of good music to choose from, and to bring back wonderful memories. I think the time, and expression have changed and everything moves faster, and less expressive, as if we’re all rushing somewhere, in the unknown, full speed ahead… Thank you for commenting, and for the feedback: they let me know where your likes and wishes are! Have a good night, Valerie!
