This is a collection of Richter's solo recordings for Philips, DG and Decca, ranging chronologically from 1956 to 1992. At its core are the, mostly live, performances released by Philips as 'The Authorised Recordings' in the 1990's. These begin with some sublime Bach, recorded in Germany towards the end of his career and cover many of the great touchstones of his repertoire. Of course, these 33 discs only scratch the surface of Richter discography, but they make for a fine starting point.
For my part, I don't know of any other artist who is able to move, thrill and inspire awe so consistently. Richter's art is totally at the service of the composer, and he inhabits the world of each piece completely. My particular favourite recordings of his, from his Italian tour of 1962, are here. Also, the legendary Sofia Recital from 1958. I'm no audiophile, but everything seems to be in at least acceptable sound.
This is a very bare bones release, with each disc with an identical sleeve picture (the one on the box) and just a track list on the back. The booklet offers an enthusiastic and engaging essay by Piero Rattalino, which encourages listening to the set in chronological order. Unfortunately, the discographical information supplied is inconsistent, missing in some cases and sometimes just wrong. I've donned my anorak and put together some basic information here, using the information in the trouvar.com Richter pages. Any mistakes are my own!
