BBC Music Magazine

March 2008


“BBC Legends have done no greater service than issuing so much Richter, and this latest disc of Schubert and Schumann, with a magical Debussy encore, shows him at his most intimate with the composers he loved most.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2007

“Schubert composed his A minor Sonata, D784 in 1823, the year in which he learnt he was suffering from an incurable venereal disease. Richter digs deep in this remarkably, bleak and uncompromising reading. The enforced optimism of the final Allegro vivace leaves us with a bitter taste, while the famously treacherous closing octave triplets are dispatched with breathtaking nonchalance.”

International Record Review

Donald Manildi

“The performance is hypnotic, full of the subtlest shades of colour”
