Sviatoslav Richter
Prokofiev, Piano Sonata no. 9 op. 103
Schubert Landler, Musical Moment no. 5, Allegretto in C

Hall of Fame HOFS 528

Sorry, it would seem there isn't an image anywhere on the Interweb of this record.
It looks as though its probably an American re-pressing of a Soviet label anyway.
Stereo artificially re-produced from original mono recording. Yuck.

The recording quality here isn't great. The Prokofiev was written in 1947, and there isn't any indication that this recording wasn't made soon after.

I haven't absorbed much of the work itself yet.
