Notes & Reviews:

This recording of the 1993 Schwetzingen Festival has already achieved cult status. The then 78-year-old Sviatoslav Richter plays for the first and last time in public Gershwin's jazzy "Concerto in F". Gershwin's works had always been suspect under the Soviet regime. All the more surprising was Richter's decision to perform this work in his maturity. Needless to say, Richter never made a formal, studio recording of this work. It is not only a unique recording, but also a document of Richter's expansive interest in all musical repertoires than came under his purview.
