“Richter is not usually thought of as a ….Chopin player, and yet he strides through the four Scherzos with an abundance of technique and deftly-coloured textures that make this version a definite front-runner.” ((c) Gramophone) “Some marvellous playing here …. in an …assortment of Chopin Preludes from a live concert” (c) Penguin Guide
