A sturdy box set of 18 CDs in cardboard sleeves with original cover art, this 2015 Sony collection of Sviatoslav Richter’s Columbia Masterworks and RCA Victor recordings is a valuable resource for admirers of the great Russian pianist. Prevented from leaving the Soviet Union in the 1950s, despite his growing international reputation, Richter finally came to the United States in 1960 for a marathon series of concerts. These recordings were drawn from his five dynamic performances at Carnegie Hall, a recital at the Mosque Theatre in Newark, and appearances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Erich Leinsdorf, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Charles Münch. Also included with these landmark performances are two studio albums Richter made for RCA, and a special 1988 live recording he made with Christoph Eschenbach and the Orchestra of the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival. Because most of these recordings have only been issued as original vinyl pressings that have been unavailable for decades, this set is an essential item for collectors of Richter’s rarities. –Review by Blair Sanderson
