The Guardian, 7/11/2012

 

This is an invaluable record of an exceptional recital Sviatoslav Richter gave at the Royal Festival Hall in London in June 1975. I doubt that any of us who were lucky enough to be there will ever forget the experience. After 37 years, this CD, taken from the BBC's recording of the concert, conveys the electricity of the occasion and the power of Richter's playing more vividly than anyone might have dared hope.

 

Richter's musical presence and the sharply focused energy of his playing course through every bar of the all-Beethoven programme. The two great sonatas that frame it may date from opposite ends of Beethoven's composing life, but Richter's account of the C major Op 2 No 3 seems to contain within it the germ of what developed 24 years later into the unparalleled scope of the Hammerklavier Sonata, Op 106, though the titanic scale of the playing is always balanced against moments of svelte beauty and breathtaking technical crispness.

After three of the Bagatelles from Op 126, each one pushed to the expressive limits of what its small frame can contain, Richter launches into the Hammerklavier – the first chord, I remember, was played almost before he was settled on the piano stool – and the tension of the first movement is remorselessly ratcheted up. After it, the scherzo is an almost throwaway relaxation and the slow movement a gorgeously expansive hymn. The finale when it arrives, fugue and all, is simply immense in its grasp of the musical complexity – every voice in the fugue is brilliantly characterised, the shape of the whole thrillingly conveyed.

 

Extraordinarily, Richter's encore in the recital was a repeat of that finale, presumably because he felt one passage in it had been muddled the first time around. The disc doesn't have space for the encore, and the whole sonata is, I'm pretty sure, presented here just as it was at the Festival Hall. If any single disc is going convince sceptics of why so many of us regard Richter as the greatest pianist of the second half of the 20th century, then it's this extraordinary 80 minutes of music-making.

Рихтер в Японии.

Возможно, весна 1984 г.

I was trying to attend all Richter's concerts at that time, He was one of the greats. It was very exciting. To me he was god-like. Whatever he was playing, I accepted it. I didn't care whether his interpretations satisfied some conventional ideas or not. Actually, the less they were so, the more interesting they sounded to me. Then I saw it more distinctly  how freedom of artistic expression could create work of genious in itself, unrelated to some long established boring  traditional practices. Listening to Richter  was like watching Mont Blanc emerging from the clouds in the sky. Then, after Richter would finish playing, the clouds would seal the view up again, and we saw only some hillls around.
