This is an attractive repackaging of an EMI Redline remastering from 1998 which included Richter's famous 1963 "Wanderer" fantasy as a filler.

Richard Wigmore's otherwise excellent filler notes begin inauspiciously with an egregiously poor translation from Shostakovich in which he is quoted as extolling the "enormity" (sic) of Richter's talent. That solecism notwithstanding, this disc is testament to the dynamism and eloquence of perhaps the greatest pianist of the 20th century. It is clearly the influence of his artistic vision which dictates the "heavenly length" of the "Trout"; all five movements are among the slowest on record. Of course, this being Richter, one might have expected that kind of originality and those slower tempi are justified by the generation of a hypnotic, mesmeric concentration. Thus the Andante has a kind of dreamy intensity rather different from other interpretations; it is just held together by Richter's predominant lyricism. Dynamics are carefully shaded and balance amongst the instruments maintained; despite the sense that Richter is presiding over the business in hand, the strings are not subordinated. Richter is - well, not exactly delicate, but certainly sensitive to his partners and when they need to be more prominent, such as in that heavenly cantilena for viola and cello early in the Andante, he retires as discreetly as one could wish. In fact in the Scherzo I would prefer him to apply a slightly more sprightly and energetic an attack rather than the slightly ponderous, massive manner he adopts. The casualty of this weightiness is the insouciance one expects in Schubert's lighter moments, but even if they do not exactly lilt, there is no shortage of charm in the famous six variations of the fourth movement.

I confess I do not have this record but I have long had both of these two wonderful Schubert performances. Richter was a truly great Schubert pianist, capable of showing us sides to his music that we recognise as soon as we hear them and yet have somehow never expected to hear. In Schubert's slow movements he can be much slower than other pianists, playing with such rapt concentration that time seems to stand still (while also passing in a moment): the performances here are not extreme examples of this art.

This Wanderer was for some time coupled by EMI with Richter's good account with Kleiber of Dvorak's neglected Piano Concerto (but to really hear that work in all its greatness you need to go to Aimard and Harnoncourt). Unless you already have Richter's Trout, the coupling here is much more desirable. This Wanderer is a magnificent account of that big, compact, uncompromising and towering work - the greatest product of Schubert's somewhat Gothic utterances of 1822. Richter blends its many voices masterfully and delivers a work of great integrity and power. He leaves us, his listeners, somewhat exhausted! The sound is just a little harsh but more than acceptable.

Richter's and the Borodin's Trout is a big fish but in no way bloated. It is not quite Viennese in flavour but is, still, very idiomatic youthful Schubert. This is an account with plenty of magic that seems to show us depths that, although we know the work well, we might not have expected to find. This evergreen work has not lacked wonderful and magical recordings but even amongst the best of these this is something special. There are many telling moments from Richter but these are not about shallow effect or merely given as interpretive points.

I love this, Schubert's Trout Quintet is one of my favourite pieces of music, and this recording seems to me to be perfect.
