Vladimir Horowitz: A Reminiscence

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
The only real thing that separates a poetaster like Vladimir Horowitz from a poet like Sviatoslav Richter is taste. Sure, Horowitz's renowned technique actually had more holes in it than a rusty bucket, while Richter's is nearly super-human in its power and precision, and sure, Horowitz's celebrated tone actually had more brass than bronze in it, while Richter's is pure gold and silver. But the thing that really makes the difference in their playing is taste. For the most part, Horowitz specialized in works that might be called show-stopping spectaculars, works designed by their composers as virtuoso demonstration pieces. But, of course, all they demonstrate is technique ...

All Music Guide - James Leonard
The only real thing that separates a poetaster like Vladimir Horowitz from a poet like Sviatoslav Richter is taste. Sure, Horowitz's renowned technique actually had more holes in it than a rusty bucket, while Richter's is nearly super-human in its power and precision, and sure, Horowitz's celebrated tone actually had more brass than bronze in it, while Richter's is pure gold and silver. But the thing that really makes the difference in their playing is taste. For the most part, Horowitz specialized in works that might be called show-stopping spectaculars, works designed by their composers as virtuoso demonstration pieces. But, of course, all they demonstrate is technique and as far as taste goes, well, there are slasher movies with more taste. So it is a relief to listen to this disc, entitled Vladimir Horowitz A Reminiscence, and hear almost nothing except tiny, tender piano pieces designed by their composers as the quintessence of their lyricism. And it is even more of a relief to hear Horowitz demonstrate an ability to spin a long line, to make a tempo pulse and breathe, to create colors as vivid and radiant as the best of Monet. From a graceful "Impromptu" through a heartfelt "Waltz," a soulful "Mazurka," an exalted "Prelude," and an ecstatic "Liebestod," Horowitz demonstrates that when he stayed away from the spectacular, he could indeed be a poet at the piano. Sony's remastered sound is warm and real.
