About

“Richter’s performances are very distinguished indeed ... playing is unforgettable and so is his rapport with Kondrashin” – Penguin Guide, 3 stars

“equally brilliant with two quite different sides of this composer, with the luxuriant virtuosity of the the Etudes in particular being thrown off with a zestful freedom that must always be rare in such complex pieces . All connoisseurs should have these performances.” – Gramophone

Philips recordings, stereo 1958/62
