Rare 1941 Dinu Lipati Test Recordings

Brahms, Intermezzo Op. 116 No. 2 in A minor
Bach, Chorale in G major "Jesus bleibet meine Freude"
Scarlatti, Sonata in G major L. 387
Chopin, Etude in G flat major Op. 10 No. 5


(A big thanks to Eliane Lust!)

And here's a Lipati motherlode to use as a therapeutic ladder of escape for those times when the world seems to be too small, too difficult to understand, and too complicated to negotiate.

Music and art are the reality, and a difficult, complicated world is the fantasy. Given the history of man, what we take from culture over centuries preserves a Brahms Intermezzo and forgets happily the little local politicians and bureaucrats who made their world so difficult and complicated. A Brahms or Lipati and all the others made it more beautiful. May we endeavor to do the same.
