 Richter at his best with 1956 Mussorky's Picture  December 27, 2012 By Tapani Talo (White Plains, NY) See All My Reviews "Richter, 1956 Mussorgsky's Picture at the exhibition concert is beyond outstanding in delicacy as well as power of of piano. I wish modern performers could go right out and expand interpretation range as he does in this and many other performances." Report Abuse
