794) Sviatoslav Richter

Sviatoslav Richter (1915 – 1997). Ukrainian pianist of Russian-German origin, who is generally regarded as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. He is known for the "depth of his interpretations, his virtuoso technique, and his vast repertoire."

- "He was very fair, red-haired, awfully thin and impetuous. http://sviatoslavrichter.blogspot.com/…/nina-dorliac-i-met-…

- "They met in 1943, the “gracefully graphic” Nina Dorliak and the young Sviatoslav Richter “with his red, red hair, very thin and terribly impetuous”, is how she remembers him."  http://www.sviatoslav-richter.ru/…/nina_dorliak_…/index.php…

- "Only the pianist Richter was a serious rival. The only resemblances between the two were their unquestionable greatness, their admiration of each other and their red hair." https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search…
