Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This intense Schubert is searchingly played by the most intense keyboard master of our time. Richter delivers a strong, authoritative reading that is hard to imagine better played. The sound is entirely acceptable. This is meditative, soul-searching music, to be heard not in the concert hall, but on your floor at two o'clock in the morning." - Herbert Russcol, New York Times - [about original LP release, 1969] "This intense Schubert is searchingly played by the most intense keyboard master of our time.
