Synopsis: This biography of Sviatoslav Richter, the great Russian pianist who dedicated his life to music and had little regard for fame in the West, shines a light on his formative years and places him against the backdrop of often tumultuous Soviet history. As the film shows, his contemporaries include the great composers of his time, and Richter rises to prominence performing alongside Russia's most celebrated virtuosos while his personal musical tastes stand in opposition to Stalin's regime.
