    Review:

    “From the insinuating suggestion of tolling bells that opens this popular Concerto, and the long breathed melody that sounds like some ancient chant unspiralling, Sviatoslav Richter is at his most incandescent.

    This is music in which the piano reigns supreme, and Richter’s pyrotechnical majesty and bravado is everywhere, often giving way to moments of tenderness that are no less hypnotic.

    Richter uncovers a brooding melancholy that imparts a Russian accent to even the most simple of gestures. As the climax to the opening movement’s development section spills over into the recapitulation, Richter thunders out his octaves as though the weight of the world was bearing down.” Classical Music
