Notes and Editorial Reviews

Virtuoso pianist Sviatoslav Richter delivers breathtaking performances of Schubert works, recorded in Tokyo.

“[N]ot just a case of the performer subordinating himself to the composer, but of both, united in the service of music's greatest miracle - an entire attitude to life encapsulated in sound... From the opening phrases of each it is clear that his sights are set on long-term processes — this is not playing which depicts; rather it maps out a journey of the spirit... same total concentration and inner intensity as the sonatas; the last (moment musicaux) extends sublimely to a hypnotic 11:48!” -- Gramophone
