Biography of Pianist Sviatoslav Richter
16 March 1999 | by (Tiverton, RI) – See all my reviews

A very good documentary-style biography of a fascinating pianist. Even people not interested in classical music per-se can enjoy this film for the insight it gives to Richter's character. Richter was a very private person, but he did agree to do this film, the story of which is directly taken from his diaries. Throughout the film there are excerpts of his playing, which is at such an emotional fever pitch that even non-musicians can understand why Richter is considered one of the best pianists of all time.
