Musical style

Lupu at Symphony Center in Chicago, 2010

Lupu used a regular, straight-backed chair at the piano as opposed to a standard piano bench. He told Clavier in 1981 that while sitting on a bench he tended to lean forward, raise his shoulders, become impossibly stiff and develop pains all over. He also said that he practiced with a chair at home and found it natural for him. Although Lupu was an admirer of the pianism of Arthur Rubinstein and Vladimir Horowitz, he named Mieczysław Horszowski as having the largest influence on his playing, saying that Horszowski «speaks to me like no one else». Lupu’s initial approach to new music was to read it away from the piano, saying that he «reads more easily away from the instrument» and that «it is the only way to learn». Lupu said in regards to tone production that «everything in music comes from the head’, adding: «If you have any concept of sound, you hear it in your inner ear. All you have to work for is to match that sound on the instrument. The whole balance, the line, the tone, is perceived and controlled by the head.» He further described tone production as a «matching process for which practices», and the physical contact of the keyboard as «a very individual thing determined by the color or timbre you hear and try to get, the piece you are playing, the phrase».

Lupu’s playing garnered admiration not only from music critics, but also by fellow major artists. Mitsuko Uchida told Humphrey Burton in a 2002 BBC Radio 3 interview that «there is nobody on earth who can actually get certain range of colour, and also the control – don’t underestimate this unbelievable control of his playing.» Nikolai Lugansky said in an interview that Lupu «possesses the rare power of letting the music speak for itself», and András Schiff stated that Lupu had the «rare gift to illuminate anything that he plays with rare musical intelligence». Other pianists who expressed admiration for Lupu or cited him as an inspiration in their music-making include Emanuel Ax, Daniel Barenboim, Seong-Jin Cho (who named Lupu’s recording of the Schubert Impromptus as his favourite), Kirill Gerstein, Stephen Hough, Robert Levin, Maria João Pires, and Daniil Trifonov. In addition, the conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin cited Lupu as an inspiration while he was a piano student, saying that listening to recitals and recordings by Lupu «shaped my conception of sound from a very young age», and the cellist Steven Isserlis called him «one of the greatest artists I have ever heard or known».

Музыкальный стиль

Лупу в Симфонический центр в Чикаго, 2010

Лупу использует обычный, прямой стул у пианино в отличие от стандартной скамьи пианино. Он сказал Клавир в 1981 году, когда он сидел на скамейке, он имел тенденцию наклоняться вперед, поднимать плечи, становился невероятно жестким и у него возникали боли во всем. Он также сказал, что тренировался со стулом дома и находил это для него естественным. Хотя Лупу — поклонник пианизма Артур Рубинштейн и Владимир Горовиц, он назвал Мечислав Хоршовски как оказавший наибольшее влияние на его игру, сказав, что Хоршовски «говорит со мной, как никто другой». Первоначальный подход Лупу к новой музыке заключается в том, чтобы читать ее не с фортепиано, говоря, что ему «легче читать без инструмента» и что «это единственный способ научиться». Лупу говорит о тон производства что «все в музыке исходит из головы», добавив: «Если у вас есть какое-либо представление о звуке, вы слышите его внутренним ухом. Все, над чем вам нужно работать, — это подобрать этот звук на инструменте. Весь баланс, линия, тон воспринимаются и контролируются головой ». Далее он описывает производство звука как« процесс согласования, для которого практикует », а физический контакт клавиатуры как« очень индивидуальную вещь. определяется по цвету или тембру, который вы слышите и пытаетесь получить, по пьесе, которую вы играете, по фразе «.

Игра Лупу вызвала восхищение не только музыкальных критиков, но и других крупных артистов. Мицуко Учида сказал Хамфри Бертон в 2002 году BBC Radio 3 интервью о том, что «нет никого на земле, кто действительно может получить определенный диапазон цвета, а также контроль — не стоит недооценивать этот невероятный контроль его игры».Николай Луганский сказал в интервью, что Lupu «обладает редкой способностью позволять музыке говорить сама за себя», и Андраш Шифф заявил, что Лупу обладает «редким даром освещать все, что он играет с редким музыкальным интеллектом». Среди других пианистов, которые выражали восхищение Лупу или ссылались на него как на вдохновителя своего музыкального творчества: Эмануэль Топор, Даниэль Баренбойм, Сон-Джин Чо (который назвал запись Лупу «Экспромт Шуберта» своей любимой),Кирилл Герштейн, Стивен Хаф, Роберт Левин, Мария Жоау Пирес, и Даниил Трифонов. Кроме того, дирижер Янник Незе-Сеген цитирует Лупу как источник вдохновения, когда он учился на фортепиано, говоря, что прослушивание сольных концертов и записей Лупу «сформировало мое представление о звуке с самого раннего возраста», а виолончелист Стивен Иссерлис назвал его «одним из величайших художников, которых я когда-либо слышал или знал».

Личная жизнь

В 1971 году Лупу женился первым на виолончелистке Элизабет Уилсон (род. 1947), дочери дипломата сэра Арчибальда Дункана Уилсона. Он проживал в Лозанне, Швейцария, со своей второй женой Делией, скрипачкой в ​​оркестре Chambre de Lausanne .

На протяжении большей части своей карьеры Лупу регулярно отказывался давать интервью прессе из-за «боязни быть неправильно понятым или неправильно процитированным». Его отвращение к прессе и публичности побудило их назвать его «затворником Раду Лупу», а The Independent назвала его «шерстяным отшельником» и «подобным тому, кого неохотно затащили в концертный зал, но попросили оставить его попрошайничество». чаша снаружи». Кроме того, Лупу обычно не разрешал транслировать свои выступления по радио. В 1994 году газета Chicago Tribune отметила, что пресс-кит Лупу содержал одно-единственное интервью, которое он дал журналу Clavier в 1981 году. Другие опубликованные интервью включают «разговор», который Лупу дал Клавиру в 1992 году, и интервью 1975 года, которое транслировалось по радио BBC . 3 .

Лупу умер в Лозанне после продолжительной болезни 17 апреля 2022 года в возрасте 76 лет.

Venus in Scorpio and the Sun in Sagittarius: his affectivity and seductiveness

In your chart, the Sun is in Sagittarius and Venus, in Scorpio. These two signs follow each other and are as opposite as they are complementary. The association of restive Scorpio with Sagittarius, open to all winds, is a paradoxical one. Your solar sign gives you an enthusiasm capable of arousing the most unexpected passions. You claim a commendable lack of prejudice and you manage to understand the other person’s differences. However, to understand does not mean to accept… Often, Scorpio’s violent and implacable passions clash with Sagittarius’ wide resolutions. For worse and also sometimes, for better. Your paradoxical sensitivity is also part of your strength, your richness and your charm. Sagittarius wants to thoroughly understand and he adjusts his thought process to his beloved partner’s. However, this configuration does not describe a quiet conformism. Scorpio is possessive, unyielding and exclusive in his loves and his hatred. Therefore, it is difficult to anticipate your affective reactions. Sometimes, a real understanding of your partner, coupled with an unfailing affective impulse, allows you to experience the intense moments of a shared love. It may be followed by a period of paradoxical, sometimes cruel passions, tears and laughters. A time for “if you don’t love me, I love you”. It is likely that it is your way to avoid what you dread most in the world: boredom born from stiff love.

You cannot dissociate love from passion, Radu Lupu. Your feelings are immediate, imperious, intense, and it is absolutely impossible for you to think of an amorous relationship without fusion, without the irresistible desire to know everything about your partner: emotions, feelings, sexuality, everything must be experienced in a possessive, absolute and unrestricted way. Actually, your feelings are as complex as they are deep. You seldom love, but when you do, a burning ardour and its torrid, violent frolics consume your couple. It is obvious that such powerful feelings may lead to jealousy and absolute exclusivity, almost bordering on the will to control your partner. If your relationship is genuine, all is fine. But if it is not the case, there are real dangers of shared wounds within your couple; it is hard to reconcile passion with tranquillity and it is clear that for you, sentimental serenity involves a partner who is either as complex as you and who instinctively understands you, or who is complementary, and as calm and steady as your impulses are intense and deep.

Концерты и записи

Концерты и записи Лупу для компании Decca, хотя и нечастые и состоящие из ограниченного репертуара, неизменно приветствуются как критиками, так и публикой. Несмотря на то, повлекший по школе русского фортепиано, он особенно известен своим лирические интерпретации и полон глубоких чувств великих композиторов немецких и австрийских из XVIII — го и XIX — го  века, особенно Франц Шуберт, Брамс, Людвиг ван Бетховен и Вольфганг Амадей Моцарт . Он также известен исполнением произведений чешских композиторов Леоша Яначека и венгерского Белы Бартока .

Раду Лупу дебютировал в США в 1972 году с Кливлендским оркестром и дирижером Даниэлем Баренбоймом в Нью-Йорке, а также с Чикагским симфоническим оркестром и дирижером Карло Мария Джулини . Он вступил в симфонический оркестр Сан — Франциско в 1974 году, с которой он выступал впервые исполняющей Грига для фортепиано с оркестром, с Сейджи Озава дирижирования. В 1984 году он был показан в сериале «Бесподобный пианист» Линкольн-центра Нью-Йорка.

Хотя Лупу давал концерты со всеми крупнейшими оркестрами мира и на очень важных музыкальных фестивалях, он довольно сдержанный персонаж. Он регулярно отказывался давать интервью журналистам более тридцати лет. В одном из своих редких опубликованных интервью он считает, что «артист должен иметь собственный голос», и выражает свою философию музыки следующим образом:

Лупу называют гением звучности, «клавишником». Его исключительное управление клавиатурой позволяет ему всегда воспроизводить красивый звук во всех регистрах и во всех градациях силы: «У Раду Лупу одна из самых обширных выразительных палитр. Часто впечатляющий пылом и энергией, он также поэт и способен на пианиссими невероятной утонченности ». Сам Лупу сказал, что для создания этих тонов пианист должен выполнять фокусы, похожие на фокусы фокусника, чтобы создать иллюзию легато на ударном инструменте: «Это вопрос баланса между обеими руками», — объяснил он Кэрол Монпаркер. . Далее он сказал:

Его отношение во время концертов целиком сосредоточено, но при этом он спокойный и анти-зрелищный. Любопытство: здесь нет табурета для фортепиано, а удобное кресло со спинкой.

Более того, он никогда не любил запись, чувствуя себя немного парализованным присутствием микрофонов. Тем не менее, некоторые из его гравюр (на Декке) отметили дискографию, в частности, его записи сонат Шуберта, которые остаются его любимым репертуаром и отсылками, Первый концерт, Третья соната и поздние фортепианные пьесы Брамса, некоторые пьесы Шумана. . Он также записал несколько концертов и сонат для скрипки и фортепиано Моцарта с Шимоном Гольдбергом, концерты и некоторые сонаты Бетховена, концерты Шумана, Грига. Но с 1995 года он отказывается записывать для диска, за исключением программы Шуберта для фортепиано в четыре руки с гравировкой Даниэля Баренбойма ( Тельдек ).

Раду Лупу также был вовлечен в важные партнерские отношения в области камерной музыки, в частности, со скрипачом Шимоном Голдбергом, сопрано Барбарой Хендрикс и его другом пианистом Мюрреем Перахиа .

Mercury in Sagittarius: his intellect and social life

Your thirst for learning is considerable, Radu Lupu, and you can spend a lifetime studying languages, geography, philosophy and law, particularly. You are open-minded and you want to abolish all kinds of frontiers. The humanist, who is dormant in you, may turn into a “frequent traveller” reaching out to others in order to understand them and communicate with them. You express your opinions and your beliefs with honesty and clarity and likewise, you receive others’ views with enthusiasm. You have numerous centres of interest and you may be perceived to be superficial, heedless and over-optimistic. However, if you manage to control your tendency to scattering, all your encounters, all your discoveries can positively influence your philosophical life approach.

Elements and Modes for Radu Lupu

Radu Lupu, Fire is dominant in your natal chart and endows you with intuition, energy, courage, self-confidence, and enthusiasm! You are inclined to be passionate, you assert your willpower, you move forward, and come hell or high water, you achieve your dreams and your goals. The relative weakness of this element is the difficulty to step back or a kind of boldness that may prompt you to do foolish things.

Cheers for communication and mobility, Radu Lupu! The predominance of Air signs in your chart favours and amplifies your taste for relations and for all kinds of short trips, whether real (travels) or symbolic (new ideas, mind speculations). You gain in flexibility and adaptability what you lose in self-assertion or in pragmatism.

Earth qualities are under-represented in your chart, with only 0.00% instead of the average 25%. Deficiency in Earth may indicate that you have no interest in material and concrete values. It is likely that you live too much in your heart or in your mind, or even in your enthusiasm! The fact remains that you may end up in tricky situations, due to your lack of good sense or forethought: material life is unavoidable even if you are rather idealistic, dreamy, or easily content. You must tackle concrete life necessities, for fear of… being forced to cope with them, later, in much more unpleasant ways!

The twelve zodiacal signs are split up into three groups or modes, called quadruplicities, a learned word meaning only that these three groups include four signs. The Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable modes are more or less represented in your natal chart, depending on planets’ positions and importance, and on angles in the twelve signs.

Radu Lupu, the Cardinal mode is dominant here and indicates a predisposition to action, and more exactly, to impulsion and to undertake: you are very keen to implement the plans you have in mind, to get things going and to create them. This is the most important aspect that inspires enthusiasm and adrenalin in you, without which you can grow weary rapidly. You are individualistic (maybe too much?) and assertive. You let others strengthen and improve the constructions which you built with fervour.


Radu Lupu was born under the sign of the Rooster, element Wood

Chinese astrology is brought to us as a legacy of age-old wisdom and invites us to develop an awareness of our inner potential. It is believed that the wise man is not subjected to stellar influences. However, we must gain the lucidity and the distance without which we remain locked up in an implacable destiny. According to the legend of the Circle of Animals, Buddha summoned all the animals to bid them farewell before he left our world. Only twelve species answered Buddha’s call. They form the Chinese Zodiac and symbolize the twelve paths of wisdom that are still valid nowadays.

The Asian wise man considers that a path is neither good nor bad. One can and must develop one’s potentialities. The first step is to thoroughly know oneself.

You hate to go unnoticed! With a touch of vanity in your soul, you are fond of situations that allow you to highlight your qualities and your plans. You have a fundamental optimism that generally earns you your entourage’s support.

This sign indicates ambition and facilitates integration and social achievement. The desire to earn general consideration prompts you to behave with liveliness, joviality and benevolence.

The only dark cloud on this idyllic picture: a certain opportunism. As you strive to earn each and everyone’s esteem, you risk to compromise yourself. It is important that, under any circumstances, you keep the clear-sightedness that allows you to follow a direction on a long-term basis, without behaving like the people for whom «any opportunity is to be seized».

Nevertheless, this sign remains a factor of success: most often, you are able to adjust your objectives to the context and to whatever the situation may offer or, on the contrary, you influence events in order to make your ideals come true.

Better than anyone else, you manage to become the centre of attention, to highlight your good disposition, to surprise, even to impress! You are careful about your image and you do not shrink from any sacrifice in order to appear to be up to all situations.

Nevertheless, your attachments are not superficial. The Rooster is credited with the capacity to be present whenever a crisis arises and to remain faithful to his friends, under all circumstances!

Chinese astrology has five elements, which are referred to as agents: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

You have a deep affinity with the agent Wood. In China, this element corresponds to the planet Jupiter, the green colour and the number 8.

You are sensitive to the harmony of your life setting and you come across as an accommodating person. Indeed, you deem useless to hurt your close friends without a sound reason. On the contrary, you strive to maintain a good balance around you.

The agent Wood implies some creative abilities: the liveliness of your imagination goes hand in hand with a sense of realities that prevents you from pursuing chimerical objectives. Your numerous projects can be successfully carried out, all the more so because, better than anyone, you are able to convince your interlocutors and forge the supports required by your plans and your ambitions.

The diplomacy you use when your interests are at stake can but favour the success of your endeavours. The only risk may be that you scatter your energy and reach saturation point because you try too hard to create, design, compose… Therefore, it is important that you limit the scope of some of your investigation fields.

N. B.: when the birth time is unknown, (12:00 PM (unknown)), these portrait excerpts do not take into account the parameters derived from the time, which means, the domification (Ascendant, astrological houses, etc.). Nonetheless, these analyses remain accurate in any case. Regarding the sources of the birth data in our possession, kindly note that the pages we publish constitute a starting point for more detailed research, even though they seem useful to us. When the sources are contradictory, which occurs rarely, after having analysed them, we choose the most reliable one. Sometimes, we publish a birth date just because it is made available, but we do not claim that is it the best one, by no means.

The Sun in Sagittarius: his will and inner motivations

Psychologically speaking, your nature is extroverted and independent, oriented towards expansion and sociability. You have the soul of a leader, energetic and active. Your charisma and your drive are fully integrated into the collective life. Indeed, as an action-oriented fire sign, you challenge yourself and you succeed in accomplishing the task straight away. Sagittarius is hard to follow because his spirit and his independent mind constantly prompt him to go further and higher.

As you are born under this sign, you are charismatic, fiery, energetic, likeable, benevolent, tidy, jovial, optimistic, extroverted, amusing, straightforward, demonstrative, charming, independent, adventurous, straightforward, bold, exuberant, freedom-loving. But you may also be irascible, selfish, authoritarian, inconsistent, unfaithful, brutal, unreliable, reckless, tactless or unpleasant.

In love, Sir, you are the mobile fire that consumes everything in your way. You are constantly in love, you are passionate and your energy and your extroversion create a love life that could fit a serialized novel: mobile and changing, you are not the man of a single woman, at least until you find the person who resists you and who arouses a love powerful enough to tame you.

Your need for freedom and independence is so strong that it is difficult for you to settle down. Many break-ups are caused by a feeling of smothering, when your love of the moment becomes too demanding. However, since you are also unstable, you often patch up as if nothing had happened and you will be forgiven: this paradox comes from your explosive mixture comprising ardour, energy, benevolence and fickleness.

Similarly to the way in which you run your business, you will settle down when you reach your forties or your fifties. You become a good husband and a good father, well acquainted with the rules of your society, full of contentment and joy. Your home will provide the room you need so that you do not feel imprisoned.

Жеке өмір

Лупудың бірінші әйелі — целлюлозшы Элизабет Уилсон (1947 ж.т.), ол дипломат Сирдің (Арчибальд) Дункан Уилсонның қызы, ол 1971 жылы үйленген. Ол қазір тұрады Лозанна, Швейцария скрипкашы әйелі Делиямен бірге Шамбре де Лозанна оркестрі.

Баспасөзге және жариялылыққа деген жеккөрушілігі оны «Раду Лупу» деп атауға мәжбүр етті, бірге Тәуелсіз оны «жүнді қалашық» және «концерт залына өз еркімен сүйреп әкеткен, бірақ қайыр тілейтін табағын сыртта қалдыруды өтінген біреу сияқты» деп атайды. Сонымен қатар, Лупу, әдетте, оның спектакльдерінің радиохабарларына рұқсат бермеді. 1994 жылы, Chicago Tribune содан кейін Лупудың баспасөз жиынтығында оған берген бір сұхбаты болғанын атап өтті Clavier Басқа жарияланған сұхбаттарға Лупу берген «әңгіме» кіреді Clavier 1992 ж және 1975 жылғы эфирге шыққан сұхбат BBC радиосы 3.

Mars in Leo: his ability to take action

What an energy, Radu Lupu! You take so many initiatives, you have so much strength for action, construction and struggle! You are part of the conquerors, loyal and concerned about panache. Your vitality is such that you can achieve your objectives and release all your creativity. However, you are so proud and so unyielding that you cannot tolerate the faintest annoyance on your way: if you are vexed, you may turn into the opposite direction as a matter of reaction. Sexually, your magnetism and your energy work wonders. You are not complicated and, as long as your slightly domineering nature is respected and you are granted due admiration, all goes perfectly well. You usually have a lot of self-confidence and you believe in you. This characteristic feature may turn you into a hero with Hercules’s strength and solar charisma.

In the span of 23 years, Lupu made over 20 recordings for Decca Records. His first recording was made in the spring of 1970. Lupu’s solo recordings, which have received considerable acclaim, include works by Beethoven, Brahms, Grieg, Mozart, Schubert, and Schumann.

The Moon in Libra: his sensitivity

You are sensitive to beauty, Radu Lupu, and your emotional reactions are often of an aesthetical order because, even in the appearances, balance and harmony are necessary for your well being. You easily identify with others, you have a talent for emphasizing their best qualities and you solve their problems with tact and diplomacy. You endlessly weigh the pros and the cons and you constantly try to please your interlocutors. In doing so, you may develop a strong dependency because you need their approval too much. It is difficult for you and your entourage to deal with your indecisiveness because it inclines you towards contemplation more than towards creation and you are tempted to procrastinate unless you try to charm others into doing things for you. But as long as harmony prevails… isn’t it what matters?
