5.0 out of 5 stars Something Special, 24 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Schubert: Fantasy In F minor For Piano Duet; Grand Duo Sonata in C etc. (Audio CD)
Having read negative reviews on Amazon.com, I'd been hesitant to add this CD to my Richter collection, but now I'm very glad that I bought it, encouraged by listening to the other Richter/Britten duo DECCA CD of Mozart and Debussy's piano music (sadly out of print).

The stereo sound quality is not as bad as I feared; Grand Duo in C suffers from muddy acoustics, especially the lower registers, but Fantasie and Variations benefit from relatively good recording quality. After repeated playbacks, my ears soon adjusted and it's never ceased to give me delight and new discoveries ever since. There are more technically polished, more faithful-to-score-markings, and certainly better recorded performances around. However, the sheer artistry of the two great musical minds and their infectious affection for Schubert's music make these performances something very special.
