Radu Lupu leads honours list

The Romania-born pianist was named Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in the honours list of the UK, where he lives. There are OBEs for the pianist Malcolm Martineau and conductor Steuart Bedford, as well as David Joseph, chair and chief executive of Universal Music. Others honoured include Catherine Arlidge, a violinist in the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra who devotes her free time to engaging children in classical music. Catherine created The Stringcredibles , a string quartet formed of fellow-CBSO musicians which runs creative workshops, performances and other events for young people. She receives the MBE, as do Michael McCarthy and Michael Rafferty, founders and joint Artistic Directors of contemporary opera company Music Theatre Wales. Also in the MBE list are the violinist Alina Ibragimova and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic supporter Milena Lady Grenfell-Baines






Radu Lupu

Radu Lupu (November 30, 1945) is a Romanian concert pianist. He has won a number of the most prestigious awards in classical piano, including first prizes in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and the Leeds International Pianoforte Competition. Lupu's concert appearances and recordings, consisting of a limited repertoire, have been consistently acclaimed. Although trained in the Russian pianistic tradition, he is particularly noted for his interpretations of the great 19th century German and Austrian composers, especially Schubert, Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart. He is also noted for performances of works by Leos Janácek and Béla Bartók.
