“(No.17) Richter makes the most of possibilities of contrast. He plays the opening extremely slowly and then when the allegro comes, he takes it unusually fast. Far from being odd, the effect is actually breathtaking … he observes the repeats in first and last movements. Excellent sound …not to be missed” (Penguin Guide)
