Karajan's rare collaborations with Soviet musicians in the 1960s resulted in exceptional recordings that have become classics - including the ones presented here: "a performance of astonishing intimacy and refinement" from Richter in Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto (October 1962), and "a deft and stylish account" of the Rococo Variations with Rostropovich (September 1968)
