Notes & Reviews:

"...This recording is not state-of-the-art sound...But here's a performance of tremendous energy and drive. Richter's astonishing technique enables him to characterize as well as bedazzle...The fireworks also throw into relief passages of lyricism all too often lost in other performances; the limpid slow movement sounds as beautiful as ever, but I don't recall the lyrical central theme of the first movement registering so clearly in any other performance." ***** -Jaffe, Classic CD
