Another rarity this week. This time from the 1986 Tivoli Gardens Music Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark. A recital given by the legendary Sviatoslav Richter in an all Beethoven program. It was broadcast via the NRK in Copenhagen by the now-renamed American Public Radio.
The program is on two players:
Sviatoslav Richter In Recital – 1986 Tivoli Gardens Music Festival
Part 1 – (Top Player)
1. Two Rondos – Op. 51
2. Sonata Number 28 in A op. 101
Part 2 (Bottom Player)
Richter was one of the greatest pianists of the 20th Century. His concerts were milestones and his fans were legion. If, by some strange coincidence, you haven’t heard him before, or are only vaguely familiar with the name – do yourself a huge favor and play this concert.
You won’t regret it.
If I’m preaching to the choir, enjoy it anyway.
