"Richter is not usually thought of as a ... Chopin player, and yet he strides through the four Scherzos with an abundance of technique and deftly-coloured textures that make this version a definite frint-runner" - Gramophone

"Some marvellous playing here ... assortment of Chopin Preludes from a live concert" - Penguin Guide
