These performances by Richter are the supreme hight of transcendental pianism and Liszt personified. No other pianists play Liszt with such ardent Romanticism, the sense of ecstasy and the tonal beauty verging on the miraculous (I sometimes wonder if Liszt himself could play like this). Listen, for example, to the superlative performances of 2nd Concerto or Hungarian Fantasy or to the almost frightening technical command in Mephisto Waltz No.1. Unlike today's so called virtuoso pianists (a lot emerging from China recently), Richter's virtuosity carries no hint of athletic showmanship or empty flamboyance, but serves music through and through. It is a cliché, but Richter nullifies himself in music.
