Composed by: , ,
This volume from Praga's critically-acclaimed Richter Edition series features an audiophile SACD remastering of the great Russian pianist playing sonatas by Beethoven. On this recording containing live performances from 1959 and 1965, Sviatoslav Richter plays the Appassionata and Tempest sonatas and the pastoral and sober Piano Sonata No.18. As always, Richter's interpretations are thoughtful and often astonishing, offering both brilliance and power and intimate reflection in equal measure.
