About

Sony Classical celebrates the 100th anniversary of Sviatoslav Richter on 20th March 2015 with the first-ever release of his Columbia Masterworks and RCA Victor live and studio recordings in an 18 CD set.

Richter was already a legend in his native Soviet Union when he performed in the West for the first time in 1960. Richterís American tour that year consolidated the pianistís international reputation and resulted in memorable recordings, collected together in this box-set.

Richterís legendary five October 1960 Carnegie Hall recitals showcased the breadth of his repertoire from Haydn and Beethoven to Debussy and Rachmaninov, with one programme devoted to Prokofiev, with whom Richter worked closely.

Along with the December 26th Carnegie Hall recital, Richterís December 28th Newark Mosque Theater recital receives its first integral release.

Two RCA discs from 1988 concerts return to the catalogue, revealing the veteran pianistís undiminished power and concentration in Brahmsí early C Major Piano Sonata, selections by Liszt, Etudes from Chopinís Op.10, plus a new recording of Beethoven's First Concerto.

Three Schubert works from a 1977 Aldeburgh Festival anthology make their CD debut.
