When this performance was first issued by HMV in 1977, Dvorak's Piano Concerto was usually played in a revised version of the solo part, edited by Vilem Kurz. Sviatoslav Richter went back to the composer's much more difficult original version, and this performance became famous for the great Russian pianist's triumph over the technological problems posed by the composer's keyboard writing, and for the insight and poetry of his playing.
