Re: Death of Emil Gilels according to Richter

Sviatoslav Richter claimed that Gilels was accidentally killed by a
Kremlin doctor giving the wrong injection during a routine visit. Has
this ever been seen from any other source? Could it have been a
Richter conspiracy theory?

According to a guy in the Richter Yahoo group, who researched for a Richter biography that was released in Sweden or Finland and that will be translated in English some time, it was the latter. None of the sources he checked, including Gilels' relatives, support Richter's theory.
