This publication collects for the first time some memorable interpretations of a pianist far from the Viennese tradition, generally centered on a grace and an executive civilization that privileged the almost abstract aspect of Mozart's pianism, to offer a more romantic and transgressive vision of Mozart's genius. The present recording comes from Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter, who was widely recognized as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century, and is sometimes proposed as the greatest of all. He was well known for his vast repertoire, effortless technique and poetic phrasing.
