Notes & Reviews:

"A bargain in a million... The concertos (from 1961) are strong, clear-headed, brilliantly executed and superbly accompanied... (Richter's) pianissimos are rapt, his running passages crystal-clear and the stormier elements in both concertos are given with immense force." -Gramophone Good CD Guide 2001
