SVIATOSLAV RICHTER - PIANIST

Autographed letter signed to Tatyana Victorovna Smirnova on the back of a 4” x 6” deckled postcard of the Belvedere Palace in Vienna by the legendary Soviet Russian virtuoso pianist.

 

He writes:

 

Dear Tatyana Victorovna,

Thank you for your congratulating poem.

I wish you and Leningraders Health and Joy

Yours,

 

S. Richter

 

We offer with an original 6.5” x 9.5” glossy photograph of Richter taking a break with an orchestra behind him.  It would appear from the eye position of the pianist and the two violinists behind him that they are listening to the unseen conductor speak.  A great image of his hands!

 

Written in a true Soviet style, the letter is written to  T. V. Smirnova with whom Richter kept up a correspondence from his various travels.  Letters to her by Richter have appeared on the market in the past, but not recently.  The photograph is superb and would make for an excellent framed ensemble.
