After an absence of twelve years, Vladimir Horowitz’s return to the concert stage was one of New York’s most exciting musical events. It was Sunday, May 9, 1965, when the great pianist stepped onto the stage of Carnegie Hall, greeted by a shouting, standing ovation. It was his first public performance since he had left the same stage on February 25, 1953. The recording of his recital would be awarded with three Grammy® Awards and become one of the most successful classical albums. In the months before the historic day of May 9, Horowitz went to Carnegie Hall – twice in January, twice in April – to play for his wife and close friends, before he decided he was ready to perform publicly. Columbia Masterworks recorded these intimate private recitals, as well as his subsequent rehearsals for his return in 1966, on tape, and they have remained almost entirely unreleased for more than 50 years. The present edition invites the listener to enter the circle of the few Horowitz confidants who attended these events in the darkened, almost deserted hall: We hear Horowitz enjoying the freedom of improvisation in previously unheard, sparkling performances, his complete recordings in the brilliant sound of the concert hall, and many witty conversations recorded in an intimate working atmosphere. The 212-page photo book contains a vast collection of previously unseen photos by Don Hunstein, three new essays by Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Tim Page, pianist Jed Distler and Horowitz scholar Bernard Horowitz, as well as facsimile images and full transcriptions of the conversations.

  • Vladimir Horowitz Cover

    Pianista statunitense di origine ucraina. Dopo essersi affermato in Russia, si trasferì negli Stati Uniti nel 1928, imponendosi come uno dei maggiori pianisti del tempo. Nel 1933 sposò Wanda Toscanini. Nel 1953 sospese l'attività concertistica, divenuta troppo logorante, e la riprese solo nel 1965, per proseguirla – con interruzioni – sino a tarda età. Capace di grande vigoria e agilità e dotato di uno straordinario controllo del tocco, mise le sue qualità al servizio di scelte interpretative molto personali, talora discutibili ma, specie nei suoi autori prediletti (Schumann, Chopin, Skrjabin), capaci di gettare nuova luce sulla pagina musicale.
