Our text is composed by
a Foreword, a translation in English from the Russian of an episode
missing in the above quoted text, and a set of notes, containing
some personal recollection about Prokofiev, Richter and Neuhaus by the
author Valerij Voskobojnikov. Translation and editing are by Lorenzo
We hope that our work
can help the reader in better appreciating and understanding the
Richter's text, which often implicitly refers to circumstances, events
and concepts not so familiar to the western reader.

the complete Heinrich Neuhaus' discography. Other documents will come
