Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Richter's febrile Beethoven is sometimes closer to Scriabin than to Vienesse tradition, but who's complaining? He lives every second. It's richly coloured, vividly phrased: terrific.

Gramophone Magazine
The Appassionata performance seems to me to be supremely satisfying; for sheer boldness of interpretation and brilliance of piano-playing it makes one gasp.
