Pianist of the Century - Complete Solo & Concerto Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon

Easily one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century, Sviatoslav Richter recorded nine albums for Detusche Grammophon between 1956 and 1962. All of those solo and concerto LP recordings are now available together for the first time, and at a budget price.

A brilliant performer as well as an enigmatic personality, Richter dominated the classical music scene for decades and gave landmark performances in almost every style, from Bach to 20th-century works.

Beautifully packaged, the albums are presented in their original couplings with the original LP artwork on individual CD sleeves.
