Recorded in 90s, these are typical performances by late Richter - the music is stripped bare to its essence and, to those who are used to dainty playing of Hewitt or graceful performance by Perahia, this austere interpretation one can be a torture. Even for devoted fans like me this is a quite challenging listening experience, but once you realise the master's intention, it is nothing short of awe inspiring.

2 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Bernard Michael O'Hanlon on 11 Mar 2012

I adore old clocks - and the more moribund the better. If one is lucky, they might be somewhat aligned to Greenwich Mean Time. Chronos is a tyrannous, sadistic deity; accordingly, they always seem older and more weathered than whatever time has elapsed since the date of their manufacture. Yes, such specimens are in the here and now but one senses they are addressing a realm beyond the merely temporal as they chase down the hours.

The aged Sviatoslav Richter in Bach is an old clock. If you're looking for clean, precise, articulate fingerwork, you may be left unsatisfied. Those among us who yap for the most primitive of keyboards in this repertoire will surely gnash their fangs when Richter buddies up with a Steinway to fathom out these works like few others. And yet, like an old clock, there is an air of indifference to these performances. I am not sure they're meant for our ears.

Tick, tock, tick, tock - tick.
