“Richter’s account of the Fantasia in C is a wonderfully poetic performance. (His) phrasing, his magnificent control of dynamics, his gift for seeing a large-scale work as a whole – all these contribute towards the impression of unmatchable strength and vision” (Penguin Guide 3 stars) “How beautifully he makes the instrument sing in the soaring song melody of the Novelette No.1” (Gramophone)
