The people's pianist
The lush romanticism that made Vladimir Horowitz so beloved echoes through events marking the 100th anniversary of his birth.
By JOHN BELL YOUNG Published September 28, 2003 [Times file photo (1982)] Many years ago, in the luxurious Manhattan townhouse of Vladimir and Wanda Horowitz, a prominent young pianist named Constance Keene asked, after a game of bridge with her hosts, if she could play something for the maestro. Horowitz, his patterned silk bow tie and matching pocket square slightly askew, consented. Taking her seat at the Steinway grand, she launched into one of Rachmaninoff's most difficult works, his Prelude in E Flat Minor. She waited for the verdict. "It was wonderful," he said. "But you should speed up at the end."

World's Great Pianists Attest Brilliance of Volodyia, Shepherd School's Concert Grand Piano
Rice News Staff
March 19, 1998 When you hear Dean Shank talk about Volodyia's colorful personality and brilliance, you might think he's referring to a beloved member of his own family. Volodyia is, in fact, a renowned Steinway concert grand piano which Shank, an artist teacher of piano, piano pedogogy and piano technology, considers to be an extraordinary musical instrument.

Some of the world's greatest pianists would agree. When master pianists are taken with a piano after playing it, they may sign their name on its cast iron plate. Among the legends whose autographs appear on Volodyia are Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubin-stein and Van Cliburn. "Volodyia" is a Russian nickname for Vladimir, as in Horowitz. Shank finds it fitting that the piano would be named after the master pianist because it reminds him of Horowitz's sonority, in that it's "very brilliant and powerful with a very large dynamic range." Shank admires the piano's remarkable combination of tonal qualitiesan enormous dynamic range and a tone that lasts a very long time. "It can be very beautiful and softly lyrical while playing slow movements of romantic piano sonatas and Chopin nocturnes, and then it can turn around and play a concerto and absolutely soar above the biggest symphony orchestra," says Shank. "I've never seen another Steinway concert grand that could be so successful in such a wide variety of musical styles and acoustical environments."

PERSPECTIVE ON THE ART OF HOROWITZ Horowitz was more than a performer; he was a creator at the piano. (Herbert Stessin) Like an actor who with unrelieved intensity makes one forget the text, the playwright, the theater, the world, Horowitz made the composer’s pristine “intentions” totally irrelevant. He was not praying at anyone’s altar, he was not anyone’s humble messenger. It was he who was sitting on Mt. Olympus, no one else. He, the master magician who breathed life into sounds. He, the mesmerizer, the spellbinder. And he was probably the last of a breed. (David Bar-Illan) Horowitz creates his own musical truths. (Samuel Sanders) The universe of Horowitz indeed parallels that of Einstein, wherein space is curved, time is relative, and four or more dimensions are required to maintain equilibrium along the competing and infinite orbits. (Russell Sherman) The importance Horowitz gave to each note stimulated the concentration of his listeners, who awaited eagerly the advent of the next new sound. He thus stopped the flow of time.

Vladimir Horowitz, Complete Masterworks Recordings 1962-1973, Volume IX: Late Russian Romantics > Customer Review #1: Brilliant but lots of eccentricities

I really wanted to rate this a 4.5 but the absolute brilliance of the Scriabin etudes forced me to round upward rather than down. The Etude Op 65, No 3, is a thing of incredible beauty in the masters hands. Something unusual occurred as Horowitz evolved as an artist: His interpretations of individual works did not become static. To be sure, the size of his repertorie shrunk dramatically but those that remained he performed with a panache, newness and vibrancy that continually startle yet satisfy. This is nowhere more present than on this CD in which he gives his beloved Scriabin yet new meanings and interpretations with all the fire, passion, detail and finesse one can muster. The clarity of the notes is secondary to the overall architecture of the small pieces. As Horowitz aged the length of his performed pieces shrunk so that he achieved an almost crystaline clarity in the few short ones he did play.

Above all pianists - indeed, above virtually any musician of the last fifty years - Arthur Rubinstein represented in both his life and his music-making a unique joie de vivre . That alone would set him apart in this serious musical age, where there is a high degree of skill but very little charm or poetry. Arthur Rubinstein was able to communicate joy in his playing. He loved the piano, he loved the music he played, and he was always able to charm audiences all over the world with one of the most extraordinary personalities that this century has seen. Of course that charm was buttressed by the mind of a superb musician, and by the fingers of a spectacular technician. Rubinstein coaxed a big, sonorous, golden tone from the instrument, and his fingers were in total command of anything in his repertoire. And that, paradoxically, was true even when he dropped notes or smudged passages here and there. For it was clear that a sloppy episode resulted not from lack of native ability but rather from sheer scorn of pedanticism. He was daring, he took chances, and if a few notes suffered en route that was unimportant. He was a natural, born to play the piano, and when he was on the concert stage one felt as though the piano itself was welded to his body. Musician and instrument were one. innigkeit of others, or the egoism of still others. Rubinstein played every piece in a natural, healthy, extroverted manner, with sweep and a big line, with color and fire. As he played, everything sounded natural and logical.

Adam de la Halle, also known as Adam le Bossu ("Adam the Hunchback') lived from around 1237 to around 1286. He was a poet and composer, born in Arras, France.
