Format: MP3 Music
By all accounts, Sviatoslav Richter was a prissy, grumpy, and tortured individual who spent his life hiding his homosexuality and putting on a facade of being ultra manly for his Russian comrades. Gosh, no wonder he never smiled! That said; man oh man could he play. It seems no matter what he plays, he never disappoints. I bought this CD because I wanted to hear his Schubert Wanderer Fantasy.

As usual it's a live performance which seems to have been Richter's preference for recording. The notion of that, I will never understand. In the first place, cramming 2000 humans into a space made for 1500 and then having them sit uncomfortably for 2 plus hours is really a bad idea, especially if you're going to record someone playing the piano. No wonder people are coughing, grunting, and squirming about trying to relieve their misery. Does anybody know? Did Richter ever make any studio recordings? I don't believe I've ever heard one.

The Schubert is simply great. He plays it aggressively and with great power. I really like when he breaks into the fugue towards the end and takes you on a whirling ride to the finish.

Buy it. You'll love it.
