The works of Chopin have had a big influence on Richter’s performing life. He attributed his love of music to his father playing a Chopin Nocturne and the programme of his very first recital included many of Chopin’s works. He turned back to these works in later years. This recital was recorded live in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory in May 1967.
