Many collectors would agree that Sviatoslav Richter was the greatest pianist of the 20th century. His enormous recorded legacy hides hundreds of treasures, many of which are included in this beautiful 51CD set. Released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth (20th March 2015), the edition encompasses his complete Decca, Philips and DG recordings, including his Sofia Recital as well as his collaborations with Rostropovich, Karajan and Benjamin Britten.
The performances in this set cover a wide range of Richter’s large repertoire, spanning nearly four decades of music making from 1956 to 1992 – solo recitals, concertos, memorable chamber music collaborations and even as Lieder accompanist (Schubert’s Winterreise with tenor Peter Schreier).
A stylish lid-off box containing 49 CDs divided into 3 categories: Solo, Chamber and Concerto Recordings
2 Bonus CDs containing a celebrated recording of Richter and Britten performing works by Schubert.
