I ran across this quote by Richter:

“My repertoire runs to about eighty programs, not including chamber music”.

What’s that, 100-150 hours of music?

Maybe eighty programs are just eighty structures, and some of the same pieces can fit into many of those structures.

But some pianists do know an huge amount of music. Horowitz said in a TV interview, "I play it all!!"
