P0882. SVIATOSLAV RICHTER: Richter, the Teldec Recordings, incl. Bach, Mozart & Schumann. 3-Teldec-Warner 66227, Boxed Set. Specially priced. - 825646622702
"These recordings from the Teldec catalogue of Sviatoslav Richter, who rarely made studio recordings and who was awkward enough about live recordings, are a true treasure.
The first disc includes the two concertos that Bach himself originally conceived for the violin, followed by Richter's first ever recording of Mozart's Piano Concerto in C major, K503, recorded live, in which Richter embraces the work's expansive gestures in the way only he can. CD #2 is a real rarity - Mozart piano works given an extra piano part by Edvard Grieg as an aid to teaching the piano. Richter is joined by Elisabeth Leonskaya playing the added part. In the Schumann Piano Quintet Richter plays with the incomparable Borodin String Quartet."
