Dinu Lipatti was born in Bucharest on March 19, 1917. His initial studies commenced at the Bucharest Conservatory under Florica Musicesco. After winning the International Piano Competition at Vienna in 1933, Lipatti went to Paris to study under Cortot, Nadia Boulanger and Paul Dukas. Lipatti's career was well established by his 1935 tour of Europe. In 1943, he became the professor of a virtuoso class at the Geneva Conservatory. He gave his final public performance in 1950, before dying of leukemia later that year in Geneva.
