Product Description & Reviews

Sviatoslav Richter's studio recording of the Liszt Concertos, with the same collaborators heard in these live performances, has long been considered a classic. It also has extraordinarily fine recorded sound. In comparison, these performances are even more exciting, poetic, and spontaneous. They have been available in unauthorized editions for decades, but the current disc is the first ever taken from the original BBC master tapes and it sounds considerably more lifelike than any previous issue. Also, Richter never made studio recordings of the other works, and he plays both with extraordinary virtuosity and style. Richter was never known as a great Chopin player, but you'll wonder why after hearing this performance. Even if you own the Philips disc, this new issue is a highly worthwhile acquisition, more than an hour of the greatest piano playing you'll ever hear. --Leslie Gerber
