“(the DG recording from London) is the Prokofiev 8th Sonata which encompasses breadth and depth in a way none of the others can match” (Penguin Guide 3*) (5th Concerto) “Richter’s account is a classic..it cannot be recommended too strongly…..this concerto could have sounded contrived BUT when put over with the rhythmic bite, the technical aplomb, and the pungency of characterisations that we see here….a very different story !” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
