(Richter) “a performance so commanding and so utterly marvellously played that it gives endless pleasure” (Gramophone) “..sense of mastery that he conveys in every note….does not however let himself be rushed in the great secondary melody, so this is a reading of vivid contrasts…The Rachmaninov really fits the description ( of ‘legendary recording’)” (Michelangeli) “this is one of the most brilliant piano records ever made” (both: Penguin Guide)
