There's not so much to say about this disc, and that has not yet been said by the finest listeners.

I've approached this disc because it's one of the "Gramophone Classical 100", i.e. one of the 100 best classical recordings of all the times (reviewed by Gramophone). Just listen to it to agree: Richter is not a surprise (my greatest sadness comes from the consciousness that we won't have any other recording from him). He has performed many concertos together with Kondrashin, and their feeling comes up at once from the firsts seconds.

Furthermore, the coupling with the Sonata S178 has been, in my opinion, a very happy choice.

The only drawback to be kept in account is the recording quality. The disc is an ADD, and not one of the best ones. The piano is not bad, but the orchestra's sound is thin and a bit confused. Fortunately for the disc, the loose in recording quality weights much lesser than the artistic quality.

Richter's performance of Liszt has always the demonic edge and the transcendental quality that make listeners to wonder if Liszt himself might have played like this. These incandescent performances of Sonata and Concerti are no exception. I've always loved this performance of the 1st concerto alongside earlier Urania recording by the master which has more urgency and fire. In the 2nd concerto, you will be amazed by the exquisite delicacy of Richter's playing. How many pianists today can make piano sounds like this!

This was the first time I had heard the Concertos, and I wasn’t really convinced by them compared to Liszt’s solo piano works – except for the finale of the 2nd, I didn’t feel that the orchestration added much, and sometimes it even irritated. The piano music itself was fine though and I liked Richter’s playing. However it must be pointed out that the recording is very hissy .
The hissing disappears for the sonata which is a “live” recording, complete unfortunately with coughs and sniffing. Here Richter is great on the gentle and soulful parts, but I find his aggressive style a bit too much on the dramatic sequences – but each to his own I suppose.

I confess that I am only reviewing the concertos on this recording having the original LP but I imagine that the performance of the sonata is likely to be awesome.

I never thought the concertos to be great pieces of music until I heard this recording. This recording was listed by Gramophone magazine as one of the 100 greatest classical recordings of all time but for too long have I avoided listening to it - what a waste!

In this recording, you get the sense that the pianist and conductor and orchestra take the music very seriously and do not simply regard the work as a virtuoso showpiece. This is evident from the first bars of the first concerto with a tremendous sense of attack. There are also some gorgeous heart stopping moments of tender pianism and some really beautiful solo passages (who was the LSO principal cellist at the time?). Amazingly, Richter does not overpower the orchestral players making the recording a true cooperation of musicians.

So, a truly inspired performance of the concertos.
