Rachmaninoff sviatoslav richter richter plays rachmaninov piano concerto no 2 in c minor op 18


That being said, these remain performances in a class of their own. The rhythmic drive, the clarity and power of articulation, the sense of fantasy of Richter's pianism continue to astound and secure these versions a place among the best. Although many collectors will prefer Richter's studio recording of the Rachmaninoff Second from a year later with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra under Stanislaw Wislocki (on DG), which is very similar in overall approach but sounds better, it nonetheless is felt that the cooperation in the earlier Russian version between Richter and Sanderling was more complete. Especially when considering the last movement, where the Polish orchestra doesn't quite follow Richter's exuberance, the Leningrad performance leaves the impression of total agreement.

 Sviatoslav Richter playing Sergei Rachmaninoff's Etude Tableaux op. 39 no. 9 and Prelude op. 32 no. 12, from a 1966 recital for Lenin Prize winners. Don't mind the image quality, what an impassionate performance!

At the end of his life - he died on August 1st, 1997 -, the great Russian pianist agreed to talk in front of a camera to Bruno Monsaingeon. In a conversation interspersed with fascinating archive footage, Richter presents us with his memoirs from beyond the grave. Composed of two seventy-seven-minute episodes, this film is among those that leave a lasting impression. Written by Anonymous
