A complete recital from a master at the very height of his powers, recorded in the Royal Festival Hall in 1975. Richter toured this programme a great deal, and several broadcasts have found their way to disc; indeed BBC Legends released the Aldeburgh Festival version recorded a few days earlier. That version is now deleted, but in any case the London Hammerklavier has a riveting frisson. Paul Baily has done engineering wonders with unpromising source material.
