This 1995 release from Deutsche Grammophon combines two memorable concerto recordings by Sviatoslav Richter. Almost all of Richter's recordings are considered legendary – particularly since he did not like recording in the studio – but these are rightfully so. They were some of the first that were released widely in the west, where he was still something of a new talent in the late '50s-early '60s, although a middle-aged man by then. The Rachmaninov Concerto No. 2 with Stanislaw Wislocki and the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra dates from 1959 and was met with high praise from most for its detail and the depth of Richter's knowledgable interpretation. It is not as ardent as most other pianists' readings, but its clarity speaks volumes and can still move the listener. The Tchaikovsky, from 1963, with Herbert von Karajan and the Vienna Symphony, is also less affecting and, in some places, less dancing than expected. It may even seem stiff to some listeners, but again, there is no arguing with the sheer intelligence of the performance. Richter and Karajan worked well together here, with a common approach to the music. The sound quality of both recordings is very good, especially with the digital re-mixing helping to enhance the fine points of the music.
