Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The performances are delightful, both scrupulous and fresh; and the character of Richter's playing with the Borodin Quartet supporting him sympathetically, make this concert an occasion well worth preserving and now transferring to the new medium."

-- J.W., Gramophone [1/1986]

"Lovers of Richter's art will be sure to want to acquire his wholly characteristic performance of both works, but especially of the Op. 81 Quintet. This is lively, elegant and vivid, not least in the Furiant."

-- J.W., Gramophone [11/1985] Reviewing LP verion]
