Chopin Waltz - Dinu Lipatti

This is the piece that made me fall in love with Chopin's music. It's also the first piece I decided to learn out of Chopin's 200+ piano works.

Dinu Lipatti is a rare breed amongst pianists. He's really a master at the piano.

Judge for yourselves.

Listen.

i remember when i was 18 i kept humming this piece to my russian piano teacher begging her to recognise it and find me the sheet music! she did and i quickly mastered the piece :)

btw, back in those days we had no internet and no youtube and no google hahahaha

i think altavista came out a year or two later :)

btw, it's sad that not many people have anything to say about the beautiful music that i write about.. if the clip is about politics, people are quick to beat each other up!

oh well.. c'est la vie

Here, this is one of the few bands I listen to where a piano is center stage.
