Notes & Reviews:

Neuhaus student Sviatoslav Richter needs no introduction - he is universally regarded as one of the very greatest pianists of the 20th century. This Soviet-era recording, made in the 1950s before he started performing in the west, includes two major works - Schubert's sonatas D845 and D850. To complete this program APR has added one of the earliest Richter recordings, that of the popular Impromptu D899/4, which dates from 1950.
