Sviatoslav Richter / BSO / Carlos Kleiber

When this performance was first issued by HMV in 1977, Dvorak's Piano Concerto was usually played in a revised version of the solo part, edited by Vilem Kurz. Sviatoslav Richter went back to the composer's much more difficult original version, and this performance became famous for the great Russian pianist's triumph over the technical problems posed by the composer's keyboard writing, and for the insight and poetry of his playing. Richter was given ideally sympathetic orchestral support by the legendary Carlos Kleiber, making one of his rare visits to the recording studio. In a high quality, vintage EMI recording, now vividly recreated for modern listeners in Testament's new LP transfer, a masterly, but still too rarely heard work, is heard as if for the first time.

Beautiful music in a poor recording

I was very disppointed because this LP has a lot of noise and shows a flat music scenery. But the music is beautiful.
