Editorial Reviews

Sviatoslav Richter made a great recording of the Beethoven First Piano Concerto for RCA, but this isn't it. Fortunately, that version (with Charles Munch and the Boston Symphony), recorded in 1960, is still available (RCA Victor Gold Seal 6804), generously coupled with two Beethoven Piano Sonatas, and it still sounds just great. This 1988 live performance is relatively slow and sluggish, far from the pianist's best despite its good moments. Some of the Chopin Etudes are extremely sensitive and involving, enough to tempt the Richter fan. But this is definitely not essential Richter. --Leslie Gerber
