Richter plays Mozart and Beethoven concertos
Wenn schon | Sydney, Australia | 09/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have long treasured my old LP of this Mozart performance, considering it the best I have ever heard, but the surface left much to be desired. The slow movement in particular is a marvel.

Finally I located this cleaned up version on CD. There is still some distortion evident, but it is very acceptable.

Richter's Beethoven performance was new to me, but it pairs perfectly with the Mozart. Richter really brings out a relation between Beethoven and Mozart."
Richter Rolls Over Beethoven
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 02/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This import CD in the "DG Originals" series features the great Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter performing Beethoven's 3rd Piano Concerto and Rondo for Piano and Orchestra, and Mozart's 20th Piano Concerto. The inclusion of the Mozart, recorded in 1959 with Stanislaw Wislocki and the Warsaw Philharmonic, is particularly apt on this "Beethoven" disc because Richter uses Beethoven's cadenzas in the first and third movements. It was this fact that led Deutsche Grammophon to include this very same performance in their Beethoven Historic Recordings box set (Vol. 20 of a Complete Beethoven series) a few years ago. Actually, all of this material has appeared on other CDs, with the Rondo appearing on an old Musikfest title and PC No. 3 recently being reissued on the "Musik...Sprache der Welt" title that also features Kurt Sanderling's brilliant mono recording of Beethoven's 2nd Symphony. (Sanderling and the Vienna Symphony perform both Beethoven works with Richter, dating from 1962.) But even though these fantastic recordings have been available elsewhere, if you want to get them all bundled up in one neat package, this disc is for you."
Ten years since the bitter Farewell !
Hiram Gomez Pardo | Valencia, Venezuela | 07/31/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"
Ten years have elapsed since the death of this giant of the piano. Sviatoslav Richter left a wake so difficult to forget, because among other virtues, his powerful imagination allowed him to perform with absolute idiomatic lexicon, the most exigent scores.

This album shows us Richter in two of his preferred works. The challenging and majuscule Piano concerto No. 20 , a visionary and even Pre Beethovenian Kv. And the fabulous Beethoven NO. 3 filled of reminiscences and mythic meaning.

One of his major artistic achievements along his successful career.
