Richter plays Chopin's Revolutionary Etude

Even though the camera is focused mainly on his head and upper body, this video of Sviatoslav Richter playing Chopin's Revolutionary Etude Opus 10 No. 12 nevertheless captures the essence of a fine performance. Take a look at the video's final shot, with Richter's hands leaving the camera view after he finishes and leaving us with only the empty keyboard.
