About

Richter and Rostropovich, the meeting of two legends around Beethoven and Prokofiev.

Beethoven first: on August 30th 1964, at the Edinburgh Festival, Mstislav Rostropovich and Sviatoslav Richter played the complete Sonatas for Cello and Piano by Beethoven for the one and only time in concert . The cameras of the BBC that were there allow us to hear these two legends in the Fourth Sonata Opus 102 No. 1, a bold work typical of the last period of Beethoven's life. A version which is hard to surpass. To measure the importance of the event, one must refer to the stature of the musicians on stage who dominate the whole history of 20th century music.
