    The alpha and omega of piano

    This is the supreme piano album. It was historical because it was the return of Horowitz to his homeland in the middle of the cold war. He has fled from the USRR in the 1920s. This return, as a cultural ambassador, was plenty of meaning by itself. But the music is extraordinary, even putting aside the circumstances of its recording. It is a history of piano from the baroque to the modernism. Scarlatti opens the set. Then a Mozart sonata sets the climax with its slow movement. The russian composers are then offered with a supreme rendition: Rachmaninov and Scriabin. The Romantics are also present via Liszt, Chopin and the landmark "Traumerei" (Dream).
    Well, this is the best piano album someone may have. I have quite a few. This was the first and I will ask to be buried with it.
