Notes & Reviews:

As part of its ongoing effort to preserve the legacy of Sviatoslav Richter, Parnassus is pleased to announce the return of a truly legendary recording: Richter in Leipzig, November 28, 1963. The original publication of this recording by another company was quickly suppressed by legal action, making it among the scarcest and most expensive of all Richter recordings. These legal issues have been resolved in U.S. Federal Court in favor of Parnassus, permitting the republication of this CD. The master tape of this recording was marred by noticeable flutter throughout most of the Sonata Op. 109. A process developed by Plangent Processes of Nantucket, Mass., has minimized the flutter to the point where the recording is consistently listenable. As a result of these improvements, the mono recording now gives a faithful impression of Richter's playing and preserves his sound surprisingly well.
