About

Sviatoslav Richter has been the most widely recorded pianist in history and the vast majority of these recordings are of his live recitals and concerts. The recital on this CD is very special as it was held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the composerís birth and is in the order it was played.

Regarding Sonata No.2, the composer has reportedly said that it would be a comparable challenge to pianists as Beethovenís 'Hammerklavier Sonata' or Lisztís 'Transcendental Etudes', and it seems that no one other than Richter and Artur Rubenstein played it for a long time.

Live recital held in Warsaw 1982.
