Munch met and heard Richter in 1958 during the Boston Symphony’s tour of Russia. Immensely impressed by the Soviet pianist, he invited him to appear with the BSO. More than two years later, during Richter’s first American tour, the pianist made his Boston debut, presented here from the original High Fidelity Mono tapes for the first time (the versions previously issued were from off the-air mono tapes). Cyrus Durgin, music critic of the Boston Globe, raved: “What he achieved were perhaps the two most perfect performances of these concertos that this chronicler ever had heard. What is more, he fired the orchestra and Dr. Munch – especially in the Brahms - to outdo themselves. The result took your breath away." (Boston Globe, 2 Nov. 1960)

First release of the entire concert from the original mono Hi-Fi tapes.
