Sviatoslav Richter in Romantic Repertoire.
Richter, considered by many to be the greatest pianist of the latter half of the 20th century, was born in 1915 in Ukraine to parents of German extraction. He trained at the Moscow Conservatory under Heinrich Neuhaus (who also taught another of the supreme pianists of the Soviet era, Emil Gilels). Richter became a lifelong advocate of the music of his friend Prokofiev, whose 6th, 7th and 9th piano sonatas he premiered, and who features in this set along with Bach, Bartók, Beethoven, Berg, Brahms, Dvořák, Grieg, Handel, Mozart, Schubert and Schumann. This array of composers, spanning three centuries, gives an indication of the breadth of Richter’s musical interests. He was a towering soloist who also had a great love of chamber music, vocal music and opera (especially Wagner). In romantic works by Schumann and Chopin, he could create uncanny effects with sound and shadings.

Richter’s five October 1960 Carnegie Hall recitals showcased the breadth of his repertoire from Haydn and Beethoven to Debussy and Rachmaninoff, with one program completely devoted to Prokofiev, a composer with whom Richter worked closely. Indeed, Richter’s success inspired Arthur Rubinstein’s ten-concert Carnegie Hall marathon the following season. This is the most thorough documentation we have of Sviatoslav Richter in his absolute prime. Twelve days of concentrated piano playing. In response to popular demand, Richter returned to Carnegie Hall at the end of the tour for three additional concerts: – On December 18, he appeared with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic (Concertos by Liszt and Tchaikovsky). Unfortunately no recording session (Bernstein was a Columbia artist).
Sviatoslav Richter was widely recognized as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. He was well known for his vast repertoire, effortless technique and poetic phrasing. Richter was born in Zhitomir, Ukraine but grew up in Odessa. Unusually, he was largely self-taught although his organist father provided him with a basic education in music.
