Notes and Editorial Reviews

This set is available at a special rate: two CDs for the price of one.
REVIEWS:
BBC Music (4/98, p.78) - "...this generously filled two-CD set is a wonderful conspectus of Richter's playing....It would be difficult to imagine a more emotionally penetrating rendition of Schubert's C minor Allegretto, or a more subtle control of nuance in Debussy's `Estampes'."
