Notes & Reviews:

All of Sviatoslav Richter's concert appearances in Prague, from his 1950 Prague Spring performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor, to his 1993 performance of the Grieg concerto, were highlights of Prague's musical life. The ability to surprise his audiences again and again was an inborn part of his personality. Under his fingers, pieces played a hundred times could suddenly take unexpected turns, as evidenced by both of the Beethoven concertos on this album (Concerto No. 1, recorded at Prague Spring on June 2, 1956, and Concerto No. 3, recorded on June 21, 1962) with the Czech Philharmonic and Karel Ancerl. These sensitively re-mastered recordings show Richter as a musician whose respect for stylistic purity never impeded his fascinating freedom of interpretation and inspiration.
