Notes & Reviews:

The hardworking Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter is said to have given more concerts than any other pianist of the 20th century, due in part to his near-manic travel and touring patterns and in part to his sheer musical appetite. This release focuses on Richter's mastery of Beethoven, which work he presented as strong and passionate yet sober and purist.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
This set, pared down from five to three discs, just contains Beethoven - and throws in Piano Concerto 3 for good measure. The performances are outstanding.
