The first time I heard him play was at the Moscow Conservatory in May 1957, and he opened his programme with the last of Schuberts sonatas. Its a very long sonata, one of the longest ever written, in fact, and Richter played it at the slowest tempo Ive ever heard. I think at this point its appropriate to confess… Im not really addicted to most of Schuberts music. I find myself unable to come to terms with the repetitive structure, and I get very restless and squirm when I have to sit through one of the longer Schubert essays. What happened was that, for the next hour, I was in a state that I can only compare to a hypnotic trance. All my prejudices about Schuberts repetitive structures were forgotten. Musical details which Id previously considered ornamental were given the appearance of organic elements. In fact, I can remember many of those details to this day. It seemed to me that I was witnessing a union of two supposedly irreconcilable qualities. Intense analytical calculation revealed through a spontaneity akin to improvisation. And I realized at that moment, as I have on many subsequent occasions while listening to Richters recordings, I was in the presence of one of the most powerful communicators the world of music has produced in our time (Glenn Gould). Firma Melodiya has compiled its first album for the 100th anniversary of Sviatoslav Teofilovich Richter from works by Franz Schubert, a composer whose music accompanied Sviatoslav Richter throughout his artistic career (he learnt the Wanderer Fantasie before he entered the conservatory, and the Sonata in five parts, D. 459, was the last piece that Richter worked on in his country house at the end of July 1997 and hoped to play during the forthcoming concert season).
