HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Various Composers – Horowitz In Moscow

front-small-boxset
Can you figure out, what you are going to do, when you become 83 years old? Mr. Horowitz gave a legendary concert in Moscow, playing as beautiful as he maybe never did before. If you are reading this, I am sure you appreciate Horowitz and his music and have already listened to this famous recording. It is just as good as when it was recorded and is one of my favorite for piano music. In the unlikely case you are not familiar with Horowitz in Moscow, this is truly a gem and you should get it. If music can move you, this most certainly will, it is very pleasant.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Elektra/Nonesuch) Horszowski Plays Mozart, Schumann, Chopin

front-small-boxset Many thanks Trottar for this beautiful rarity
Incredible: what you are listening to is the perfect playing of a 95 years old grandmaster.
Mieczyslaw Horszowski lived to the age of 101 and enjoyed the longest career in the history of the performing arts. He never achieved, or aspired to, the notoriety of his friends Arthur Rubinstein and Vladimir Horowitz. But in his last decade, he became something of a cult figure, his performances and recordings sought out by those curious about this last link to the Golden Age of Piano Playing, and those simply wondering whether someone so elderly could still move his fingers.

Composer: Frédéric Chopin, Robert Schumann, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
