Code: PARNASSUS 96053
|ARTISTS: Sviatoslav Richter, piano.
In 1972, Sviatoslav Richter chose to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Scriabin by performing an all-Scriabin program in three locations. These concerts, while not quite unique, were very uncommon events in Richterís career. He did not often give concerts devoted to a single composer. Although he played Scriabinís music throughout his career, concerts devoted entirely to that composer were very scarce; he performed them in public only in 1945, 1957, and in 1972.
