Sviatoslav Richter

Sviatoslav Richter.

This show features the incredible Ukrainian pianist Sviatoslav Richter, who was revered by audiences and by fellow famous pianists. He was in a class by himself. We’ll hear him in the Dvořák Piano Concerto conducted by another legend, Carlos Kleiber, and in music by Chopin.
