Richter Plays Prokofiev
Richter at his best
Soviet piano master Sviatoslav Richter plays the piano works of Sergei Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 5, Piano Sonatas Nos. 7 and 8, and as a bonus three short pieces from Visions Fugitives (Nos. 3, 6, and 9). The recordings of Concerto No. 5 and Sonata No. 8 have been hailed as perhaps the best examples of these pieces on record, the recordings clear and the performances outstanding. Both have received coveted 3 Star reviews by the Penguin Guide.
