  • Tremendous. Simply tremendous. And stunning. Tremendous and stunning.
    One can hear here one of the greatest – possibly THE greatest – of all Debussy piano interpreters.
    Thank you so much for the linkage, Norman, and….
    Bless you a million times, Sviatoslav Richter!

  • Always interesting to hear and read the hidden articles about the Maestro.
    Many audio recordings have surfaced on YT thanks to fans.

  • “This is what he played “….certainly ain;t what Haydn hear
    This worshipping the dead is being pushed to extremes.
