Overview

Vladimir Horowitz was a prolific recording artist from the 1930s until just days before his death in 1989, and much of his studio work is readily available on CD. This massive box set of 50 CDs contains live recordings Horowitz made in two periods, 1966-1968 for Columbia, and 1975-1983 for RCA, which were not released until 2015. These recordings were made at a variety of concert venues across the United States and in London, England, and the excitement of these recitals is preserved in the unedited eight-track and three-track analog tapes, as well as the digital tapes from 1981-1983, freshly remastered for this collection. The appearance of this set is due to the success of another large collection on Sony Classical, Vladimir Horowitz Live at Carnegie Hall, so aficionados of his highly varied and dazzling performances will delight in the additional material. Along with the CDs is a large-format hardcover book, which offers many photographs and detailed information about the recordings.
