Notes & Reviews:

Recorded in 1972 in Salzburg at the height of his powers, upon first release Gramophone wrote:(of D958) "first movement is all fierce concentration and bleakness, the second all intense inner singing, and the finale... a hellish drive... - an utterly compelling experience" (of D960) "Monumental: controlled desperation... Any duffer can make this sonata touching, but with Richter (at risk of malicious misunderstanding) it becomes appalling. It bores into the soul."
