Notes and Editorial Reviews

Melodiya offers a set of recordings by the great pianist of the 20th century, Sviatoslav Richter, which reflects his diverse performing interests. The history of piano music does not seem to know any time intervals, ages, or schools that Richter left outside his pianistic orbit. Bach, Scarlatti, Viennese classics, Romanticism, French impressionism, the entire palette of Russian music of the 19th and 20th centuries: he did it all. “No matter if he plays Bach or Shostakovich, Beethoven or Scriabin, every time the listener hears somewhat of a living, resurrected composer,” famous teacher Heinrich Neuhaus said about his pupil. - Melodiya Melodiya offers a set of recordings by the great pianist of the 20th century, Sviatoslav Richter, which reflects his diverse performing interests.
