“Technically, Richter is extraordinary. He negotiates the opening cadenza’s difficult hand-crossings with uncompromising smoothness and impetuously sweeps through the movement’s acres of thick chords and trills.” —

Hear legendary pianist Sviatoslav Richter perform the music of Johannes Brahms on this reissued recording on RCA. His appearance with Erich Leinsdorf and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra was met with critical acclaim and received the 1960 Grammy® Award for Best Classical Performance–Instrumental Soloist.
