Notes & Reviews:

"This is a compilation of recordings made between 1964 and 1980 by the legendary Karl Richter... From today's vantage point, Richter seems almost a transitional figure, since his playing is far from the ultra-romantic school of the early 20th Century but just as far from the rigors of histroical performance practice... There is a real authority to this playing, and it is good to have these performances available in a new issue." -Gatens, ARG
