About

Richter is not usually thought of as a ....Chopin player, and yet he strides through the four Scherzos with an abundance of technique and deftly-coloured textures that make this version a definite front-runner.” - Gramophone

Some marvellous playing here .... in an ...assortment of Chopin Preludes from a live concert” - Penguin Guide

Penguin 3*; BBC Radio 'Building a Library', budget version.

Reviews
