Autographed 8” x 11” open bi-fold program for his Prague Spring Festival recital June 2, 1984.  We offer with a vintage press photograph dated 1974.

Richter (1915-1997) played at the Spring Festival in Prague a number of times with varying repertory including a major portion of the Beethoven Sonatas.  This particular 1984 concert which contained the Brahms Sonata op. 2, the Brahms’s Variations on an Original Theme, op, 21 and a portion of Rachmaninoff’s Etudes Tableaux op. 33 and 39 was recorded live.  The concert has been broken apart and issued separately Brahms on one recording and the Rachmaninoff on another.  The entire concert is absolutely sensational, the Rachmaninoff is available on YouTube.
