Richter - Schubert Wanderer Fantasia/Sonata - Vinyl LP

Catalogue number HIQLP042

Recorded on 11-13, 16, 18 February & 11-12 April 1963 at Salle Wagram, Paris with legendary producer Peter Andry and engineer Paul Vavasseur.

Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional 'advance' playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process.

'"Good – I'll play it three more times". The place was Paris, the Salle Wagram. The time was two o'clock in the morning, late February 1963. The speaker was Sviatoslav Richter, and 'it' was the opening Allegro, 188 strenuous bars long, of Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy.'

So starts the original sleeve note on this LP, which is unusually an account of the recording sessions rather than a note on the music. Ironically Richter disliked recording in a studio and preferred an audience but nevertheless the performances captured here are, as Gramophone remarked, "really something very special."
