It's on Japanese Denon only as far as I know. There's an earlier live recording on a rare Alrecchino CD but I haven't heard it (apparently the sound is awful). I'll happily upload the Sofronitsky.

Sounds good! Thanks!  :)

Just out of curiosity, have you heard his 2 CD set which was released on BMG/Melodya and later on Living Stage? It contains some Schubert.

Do you mean Sofronitsky? No, I haven't.

But look what I just ordered:



This one has 4 Richter Schubert Sonatas including the 1958 D 958 from Budapest that you've been raving about!

There's one left on amazon from a 99% rated seller if anyone is interested.

Great, so that just leaves the Liszt works and Chopin Preludes, Baracarolle, Nocturne, Polonaise Fantasie from the "Authorised Recordings" series.

There is one more teeeensy disc from that edition that isn't one of the volumes per se but which Philips threw in as a feebie for those who sprung for the complete box: a disc of miniatures, including Franck, Liszt, etc...

I wonder if that one is coming down the pipe...

That's funny. I just checked Amazon and they have the M&A one available for $17.99. Obviously the seller doesn't know the value of it. I tried to buy it but he doesn't ship abroad (lots of US sellers don't :( ) so whoever wants it can grab it.

Since I am unsure which transfer is better (and Richter's Schubert is my very favorite combination of Pianist/Composer) I snatched it up.  8)

good choice. I wanted to buy it as a (future) present for someone. I could have shipped it to a friend in the US but it wasn't that important. Better you have it, then you can flog the other one on Ebay ;)

the M&A release is quite old though. Living Stage may have improved it, I don't know.

yeah, that's the thing about Richter, he teaches you the famous saying: "Money talks, but mine only knows how to say goodbye". All those recordings of the same repertoire from different venues, different years, and then the bootlegs and radio stuff, if anything it'll end with burn out before the actual recordings end! :)

George,

That looks interesting. What label is it? Do you have a link?

Ha! I wonder if the recorded medium could ever keep up with Richter's voracious appetite...? ;D

I'll add to the thanks here. Very different from your typical D960, and I like it.

Living Stage.


Btw, I have a Living Stage 2CD set including Richter's Moscow '56 D845 and D850 (+ a disc of Schumann) which isn't on Trovar. I wonder what the story is with that.

Hmmm. Does it have the same performances or at least performances that are listed on Trovar on another label?
