    Sviatoslav Richter

    £ 9.99

    This rare June 1967 live broadcast recording makes it's first appearance on CD. The recital at the Royal Festival Hall very much reflects the pianist's personal taste containing the infrequently played Haydn Sonata No.62 and Weber's Sonata No.3 together with the Schumann Novelettes with the more popular additions of Chopin and Debussy. Richter declared 'my principle is to play only works that I really love and not just those that are currently accepted'. ICA's Ambient Mastering recreates the atmosphere in the Royal Festival Hall perfectly. More details

    Sviatoslav Richter

    £ 9.99

    The Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) was one of the greatest interpreters of the 20th Century along with his compatriots Emil Gilels, David Oistrakh and Mstislav Rostropovich. Richter made his debut in the West in 1960 with Beethoven's Piano Sonata No.3, op 2 No.3 at a recital in New York. Beethoven's 'Hammerklavier' Sonata was one of the main features of Richter's programming in the summer of 1975 in Prague, London and Aldeburgh, the latter performed one week prior to London and recorded on BBC Legends. The 1975 concert at the Royal Festival Hall in London was regarded as one of the greatest that Richter gave in this country. This is the first time that this recital recorded in stereo has been issued commercially on CD in an authorised version. More details
