Notes & Reviews:

"His complete recordings for the EMI label are undeniably an excellent choice. The best of Richter's solo recordings here are those of Schubert and Schumann. In no other recorded performances has a pianist so well expressed the ardent lyricism and athletic virtuosity of Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy or the passionate longing and ecstatic release of Schumann's C major Fantasy." -All Music Guide
