Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) was one of the most respected pianists of the 20th century. Known for his depth of interpretation, virtuoso technique, and vast repertoire, he is possibly the most popular Russian pianist of recent generations. He gave his first recital in 1934 at the Engineers Club of Odessa, three years before he began formally studying piano. He is now an icon for record collectors. Included in this new release from DOREMI are Beethoven works from broadcasts recorded in 1963, 1973, and 1986. These live performances are presented here in excellent remastered sound. All items presented on this album are first release ever.
