Description: Richter hated to be filmed performing and didn't know until the last minute that this recital was to be filmed. A compromise was reached which left the stage almost completely dark (Richter really wanted only a 40-watt bulb on the music) so, while we don't see much of the pianist, we see more than he would have liked us to see. Sviatoslav Richter (piano). 4:3 picture format. Dolby Digital 2.0. Region 0. NTSC. 90 min.
