A legendary 'Hammerklavier' from the genius of Richter; who reduced the audience to holding their collective breath, to avoid missing the last largo evolving into an irresistible allegro risoluto. Live recordings: June 2 1965 [No. 27]; May 18 1986 [No. 28]; June 1975 [Hammerklavier] reissued from PR254022 authorised by Richter in 1996.
