Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"The Scriabin and Prokofiev performances here are among Richter's best in the repertoire. Nobody, not even Horowitz, ever made Scriabin's rhapsodic tempos and voluptuous harmonies sound so inspired, and nobody, not even the composer himself, could out-perform Richter in Prokofiev's muscular piano writing. And his Shostakovich performances are even better. Strong-willed, clear-eyed and steel-fingered, Richter reveals giddy heights and abysmal depths in the Preludes and Fugues that even the composer seems not to have known were there in his own recordings. -All Music
