This is the first time I've heard this etude. I thought it was really beautiful. I especially loved the part from 1:15 from 1:45 with the middle voice. It'll probably go down as one of my favorite piano passages. It sounds so lush!

Yeah! :) The whole etude is filled with inner voices which I think Richter brings the best :D Such a beautiful and cool piece and one of my favorites :)

Very convincing!

Always nice watching someone skilled who clearly cares about the music they're playing.

I'm sorry, but I can't get over the 12th you managed to play with your LH at 0:36...

You LUCKY BASTARD!!!

I can barely get a 10th to sound cleanly.

I've listened to a bunch of other versions of this piece, but keep coming back for the passage around 1:15. I really like the way the middle voice was initially emphasized, then draws into the background and gets "lost", and the phrase ultimately ends with the busy part around 1:35.
