Product Description

A legendary 'Hammerklavier' from the genius of Richter; who reduced the audience to holding their collective breath, to avoid missing the last largo evolving into an irresistible allegro risoluto. Live recordings: June 2 1965 [No. 27]; May 18 1986 [No. 28]; June 1975 [Hammerklavier] reissued from PR254022 authorised by Richter in 1996

HASH(0x9267b330) out of 5 stars Very fine Hammerklavier 31 Jan. 2014
By Dr. Steve Bennett - Published on Amazon.com

I'm collecting many of the Praga Digitals Reminiscences releases of Richter material, as I've found the SACD remasterings in most cases to be superb, with clearly audible improvements (more "presence"...to include cleaner transients and overtones) to CD releases of the same performances. Although I'm not a completest collector (who can be?) I have collected performances of all the Beethoven piano sonatas he chose to play (23 of the 32 ). He did not begin playing op 106 in public until 1975, and stopped playing it entirely a few years later. His performance is very fine, particularly in the final movement which I found to be mesmerizing in its virtuosity, and which I immediately replayed. The other two sonatas on this disc were less memorable, especially op 101, which he recorded in 1986 and...which didn't hold my attention as I found it to be inferior conceptually to either of the two 1950's performances by Rudolf Serkin with which I am familiar. The OP 90 (#27) was recorded in 1965 and was very satisfying...although much more modest that the two sonatas that follow it.

If you've not heard Richter's way with the Hammerklavier this is a fine example..especially in the superb sound provided by the Praga engineers.
