There is a lot of footage of Richter playing at various stages of his career. Two clips in particular stood out for me. Firstly, a bewildering black and white clip of Richter playing the Op. 10, No. 4 Chopin Etude at such an impossible and fantastic speed that one feels certain that the footage has been speeded up. However, the pitch of the notes is correct so there obviously was no speeding up. So one is faced with a reality that does not seem possible, such is the accuracy, speed and power of the performance. It can’t be done but you just have to accept that Richter did it. What can you do? Either tear up the music books and give up or just keep on practising! Secondly, a clip of Richter playing the Tschaikovsky piano concerto. Again, the sheer speed and force are awe-inspiring, yet Richter himself seems unbothered, even bored! The conductor of that performance later said that he had not enjoyed it because Richter’s personality was so enormous that orchestra and conductor alike were bent to his will.

hahahaha, what a mofo

Yeah, this is really disingenuous film-making - the quote is clearly out of context. He was reading a journal entry where he was disappointed with a performance and wrote “I do not like myself.” And then the sad, mopey extended cut seems to be from another segment altogether - probably during break time. He’s not even wearing the same outfit.

I’m not sure Richter knew he was being filmed here, which makes it even more disturbing.

Still I find it hard to fault Monsaingeon. It’s perhaps the best music documentary I have seen. I remember I watched it near daily in the weeks after it came out, and it might in fact have been what got me interested in Richter in the first place. Even if the end quote is out of context it’s also not out of character - Richter was highly critical of himself, and did struggle with depression. Unnecessary to architect the ending anyway but I would have minded more if it had concluded a film about Argerich say, not to mention people like Rubinstein or Gavrilov.

I wish I’d picked up a copy of the book. I used to read it at the library in between classes. It was one of my favourites. I love the documentary too.
