Sviatoslav Richter Plays Rachmaninov

One of Richter’s most sought-after recordings returns to the catalog at a value price

It has been more than a decade since the death of Soviet pianist Sviatoslav Richter, but his reputation and fame continues to grow, and his recordings continue to be among the most sought-after classical piabno recordings ever issued. While his major label recordings have rarely been out of circulation, the many recordings he made for indie labels have often proven elusive – and commanded stratospheric prices on the used and auction markets. Alto is pleased to return to the catalogue some of Richter’s most sought-after sessions, once available on the independent UK-based label Olympia and now available for the first time at a super-value price.
