Richter plays the Scherzi like a man inspired, with wonderful presence and seriousness. But there is no sense of strain from this master of the keyboard. His transitions from fast passages to slow movements is a wonder to behold. The Penguin guide gives this its highest possible rating, the Rough Guide as well. Radio 3 had a one hour special on the scherzi recently and chose Richter, hands down, above every other pianist. After hearing him on that programme I, straight away, ordered this CD. This is the year of Chopin, and this just might make your year...

He was incredibly good, Richter ! These are superb interpretations - no question at all. The scherzi are just superb displays of pianism. Richter's technique allows him to make everything seem possible - and the focus is on the music, not the amazing piano playing. It seems a little odd that there is only a selection of the Preludes, but that was Richter's way. He only played the ones he liked. Fair enough, I suppose...... This is superb playing, and Richter was supposed to be not good in Chopin. Hear this, and you will realise that was nonsense. More, the truth is that Richter was slightly variably - super-humanly brilliant sometimes, and just brilliant others !. Here, he is absolutely top form.

I had never previously associated Richter with Chopin and heard about this cd on Radio 3 "Building a Library" The playing of all four scherzi is superb and I would thoroughly recommend this cd to anyone interested in both Chopin and Richter

Verified Purchase
The playing by Sviatoslav Richter is truly inspiring. The four scherzi are particularly good. The middle lyrical section of No.1, Op.20 is most beautifully played. The lyrical section of No.3, Op.39 is also marvelous.

Richter plays selected preludes from Op.28. He often performed only those works he considered excellent, ignoring lesser works. So, he presumably selected these 13 works for the concert which was recorded live in 1979. Prelude No.7 in A is slightly mannered in its tempo with noticeable hesitations. But, apart from that, he illuminates the subtle nuances in these lyrical and magical compositions.

Overall, there is complete naturalness and insight in Richter's performance. The recorded sound is very good and natural. At such a low price, this CD is a bargain.
