The rare and noble alliance of Sviatoslav Richter and Carlos Kleiber is formidably eloquent in making a case for Dvořák symphonically conceived Piano Concerto, here performed in the composer’s original version, rather than the adaptation made by Vilém Kurz. It is complemented by a work for solo piano, Schubert’s ‘Wanderer’ Fantasy, in which Richter again displays his masterly sense for musical architecture.
Top Customer Reviews
Wanderer-Fantasy, played with penetrating tone and uncompromising technical refinement, receives Lisztian rendition; not a hint of sentimentalism, but radiant with transcendental beauty.
Relatively good stereo recordings, beautifully remastered.
Interestingly, Richter himself thought this recording wasn't altogether successful, saying that both he and Kleiber were tense at the time. If that was the case, I certainly don't think it shows - this, more than any other recording, makes the Dvorak sound like an A-list piece.
The Schubert Wanderer Fantasy is also a classic - only Richter has managed to capture the full terror of the outburst in the Adagio, for example. This recording is more polished and controlled than his wild (but more exciting) live recording on BBC Legends.
Recordings of live performances by Richter in the Dvorak Concerto do exist - the LSO / Kondrashin one mentioned above (download now available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005QJ1R7U/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp?ie=UTF8&qid=1390567951&sr=8-2), one made in Prague with Vaclav Smetacek and also one with Yevgeni Svetlanov.Read more ›
