There are lots of Richter's specialities...There's some wonderful chamber music ...a coruscating Rachmaninov "Two" from Warsaw, two wondrous Liszt concertos...and an eccentrically compelling Tchaikovsky "First"...a staggering "Pictures At An Exhibition", live in Sofia in 1958.

Classical Music
This could well be your one-stop-shop for arguably the greatest pianist of the 20th century... this material has never been collated so economically, or notated so accurately, and is an essential purchase.
