Synopsis

Album Description
The Bach and Beethoven were recorded live in Paris on May 12, 1964; the Prokofiev on April 18, 1967. Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) is numbered among the finest pianists of the twentieth century. He exhibited all the best traits of the Russian school of playing: dynamism, lyrical expressiveness, and a wide range of tonal color. Combined with his typical thoughtfulness, subtlety, and attention to style, these qualities assured Richter of a distinguished international career. For many listeners, indeed, he was the paragon of balance among virtuosos.
