(Concerto) “Richter’s 1960 performance has all the intensity of a live occasion and finds him in splendid form. … the basic structure is always kept in sight: there is impressive weight and authority as well as a warm Brahmsian feeling and it is far more dashing and spontaneous than his later recording (with Maazel)” (Penguin Guide 3 stars) (Sonata) ‘This was an extremely successful concert and it really should come out on record’. (Sviatoslav Richter 1985)
