Notes & Reviews:

Sviatoslav Richter is acknowledged today as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. In this rare recording, making its first appearance on CD, enjoy Richter as he plays Haydn, Weber, Schumann and more. Superb Ambient Mastering recreates the atmosphere in the Royal Festival Hall perfectly.

MusicWeb International
The sense of colouration here is powerful, the clarity of passagework in Feux d'artifice stupendous... this performance is... outstanding.

ClassicsToday.com
Richter's tonal magic and witty characterizations enliven the four Debussy Préludes from Book II; listen to him go nuts at the end of Feux d'artifice! If sonic considerations don't matter, and you'd like to hear Richter on close to prime form, then buy this disc.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Royal Festival Hall, London (06/11/1967).
