Text in englischer Sprache verfügbarLuiza Borac is among the most prominent pianists in contemporary Romania. She specializes in the music of composer George Enescu and pianist-composer Dinu Lipatti but also performs a wide range of non-Romanian repertory. Borac was born in the university town of Pitesti, Romania, in 1968. She took up the piano at four and was sent to a school for musically gifted children in Bucharest. After winning the highest honors at the Bucharest Music Academy, she benefited from Romania's opening to the West in the early 1990s, earning a grant from the Chopin Society that allowed her to study at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, Germany. She graduated from that institution with honors as well, rounding out her education with master classes at the Juilliard School in New York and the International Summer Academy at the Salzburg Mozarteum, among others. Borac is based in Germany and has given concerts across Europe and the U.S., but has maintained close ties to her native country. She has given solo recitals at such venues as Carnegie Hall, both the London and New York locations of Steinway Hall, and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. A frequent guest at summer music festivals, she has appeared at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, the Aldeburgh Festival, and the Oslo Music Festival, among many others. Borac has specialized in the music of Enescu and other Romanian composers. She recorded the complete piano works of Enescu for the Avie label, and in 2012, she issued (again on Avie) an album of the much rarer piano music by Lipatti. In 2017, she was signed to the Profil - Edition Günter Hänssler label and released the album Inspirations & Dreams, following that up two years later with Mozart in Love. Borac has served as Musical Ambassador for the Music in Our Schools project organized by the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition.
