Sviatoslav Richter (1915-97) has left behind the extraordinary image of a highly sensitive, angst-ridden yet ultimately serene musician, a true monstre sacre, a perfectionist in search of the absolute. This duo of enationalistf concertos by Grieg and Dvorak featured only briefly in his repertoire. The uncharacteristic liberty of his playing and the sense of exultation is astounding, illuminating this romantic composition based on imaginary song and dance national folklore. They form a unique, totally unprecedented combination.
