I was so sorry to read of Radu Lupu’s death. He had withdrawn from performing in 2019, and I read now that he had some serious health issues, but what a loss to the music world.

He played with San Jose Symphony a few times (the first while I was there was when I joined the orchestra in the 1975-76 season, and he played Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1). SUCH a fine, fine musician. Not showy. He just oozed music. He also played with Midsummer Mozart at least once.
