Sensibler Exzentriker - Sensitive Eccentric (10CD)

Current Stock:
Sviatoslav Richter

This compilation features recordings made between 1950 and 1958 and “accompanies” the legendary pianist on his way to the Mount Olympus of piano playing. The repertoire ranges from Johann Sebastian Bach over German classicism and romanticism (Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann) to that gathering of great Russian composers – Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Scriabin, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev.

The compilation also features a number of extra delicacies – including live chamber music recordings made with Richter‘s duo partner, Mstislaw Rostropovich.
