Sviatoslav Richter: The Complete Warner Recordings / Sviatoslav Richter, piano; Various artists [24 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

Often named the supreme pianist of his era, Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) was a poet of the keyboard and an enigmatic, sometimes eccentric figure. These 24 CDs span three centuries of music – repertoire for solo piano and piano duo, chamber music, song and concerto – and bring Richter together with other great artists of his time. As the New York Times wrote, his pianism "combined astonishing technical mastery with bold, wide-ranging musical imagination. His control over the colorings of piano tone was incomparable."
