Synopsis

Amazon.com
These 1959 live performances from Prague are the earliest documentations of Sviatoslav Richter in these works. His more unbridled, subjective approach to the Symphonic Etudes, for instance, markedly differs from the iron discipline and rock-steady metrics of his 1970 studio traversal. Why is variation 9 missing? In the Fantasy, Richter's introspection takes on a more three-dimensional cast live than in his paler EMI studio version. --Jed Distler
