Vladimir Horowitz - Horowitz (The Last Romantic) 180g Vinyl LP
Vladimir Horowitz Horowitz (The Last Romantic) 180g Vinyl LP
Even 30 years years after his death, his name still conjures up magical imagery. An artist of extraordinary pianistic abilities, Vladimir Horowitz came to define an era, when performing artists put their personal stamp on everything they did. And Horowitz did it like no one else, before or since. But what made Horowitz so special? Was it his thundering octaves, delicate pianissimos, willful interpretations, or unique sound? The answer is yes, yes, yes and yes.
Any attempt to define the qualities of Horowitz usually begin and end in a sea of superlatives. Horowitz's ‘ne plus ultra' virtuosity earned him his reputation as the "Liszt of our age." Commemorating the 30th anniversary of his death (November 5, 2019), Deutsche Grammophon is reissuing four of Horowitz's legendary recordings on 180g vinyl, including Horowitz (The Last Romantic), and is also releasing for the first time ever on the format, Horowitz in Hamburg: The Last Concert.
