About

Svjatoslav Richter's fabulous Liszt, virtuoso, seductive, risky ...even Arrau, Cziffra or Brendel at their zenith would have balked at such a recital.

Amongst the composers chosen by Richter during his Soviet and later international career, he returned always to Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Schubert, Haydn, Mozart and Schumann. Then came Liszt, represented by the significant or unusual compositions that the pianist selected and included in his programmes.

Richter's Liszt legacy is revealed as fabulous, heard here in its original purity.

Recorded: 1956-58 and 1965
SACD mastering from simultaneous mono broadcast recordings.
