Richter: L'Insoumis (The Enigma) (Sviatoslav Richter/ Bruno Monsaingeon) (Euroarts : 3073518)

Add To Wish List + £24.99 - Out of stock

One of the most famous classic documentaries about Sviatoslav Richter available on DVD again!

~ The film is entirely "narrated" by Sviatoslav Richter who we get to know as both musician and pianist, particularly through his reading of extracts from his "musician's diary".

~ An interview with his wife, the singer Nina Dorliac rounds out the narrative.

~ A particularly painful family history; an unconventional apprenticeship in Odessa; a very particular vantage-point of Stalin´s funeral; forbidden to perform in the West until 1961, the bitterness of a triumphant American tour; a scathing view of the musical milieu and its performing artists.

~ In the two years preceding his death on August 1st 1997, the Great Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter agreed to a no-holds-barred conversation about his life and career, which was conducted in the service of music, regardless of all conventions.

~ Intercut with a great deal of archive footage and rare or unpublished music material, this is the story of a turbulent life and era.
