Horowitz was one of this century's most famous pianists, renowned for his tremendous technique. His audiences were often full of pianists trying to glean insight into how he accomplished what he did at the piano. While Horowitz himself composed a few hair-raising pieces to close off his recitals, he regarded himself solely as an artist who used his ability for musical ends. About My Horowitz Page.

After a Russian debut at the age of 17, he appeared with overwhelming success in Berlin and Paris in 1924 and made his American debut with the New York Philharmonic in 1928. Possessing remarkable technical virtuosity, he soon became one of the most popular pianists in the United States. Unlike contemporary pianists, he was willing to interpret the music independently of the composer. In 1933 he married the daughter of Arturo Toscanini and settled (1940) in New York City. Horowitz gave few recitals after 1953. See biography by H. C. Schonberg (1992). The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia,

Extractions: Vladimir Horowitz's Biography Vladimir Horowitz was born in Kiev, Russia on 1 October, 1903. His father was an engineer, his mother a musician with whom he began to study the piano at age six. At fifteen he entered the music conservatory in his native city, studying with Felix Blumenfeld. He graduated in two years with honors and began to perform; his debut in the neighboring town of Kharkov was enthusiastically received. After additional concerts there and some in Kiev, he went on to triumph in Moscow and Leningrad. Thus began one of the most spectacular musical careers of this century. In the 1924-25 season, at the age of 21, he gave 70 concerts, 23 in Leningrad alone, all to capacity audiences. Horowitz felt that without the Russian revolution, he would never have become a virtuoso. In the fall of 1925, he used his own money and invested it in a desperate grasp for success outside Russia. He played concerts in Berlin, Hamburg and Paris. News of his phenomenal playing spread quickly. In Paris, the American concert manager Arthur Judson heard him and signed him for a tour of the United States, which took place in 1928. Horowitz used the opportunity to escape the revolution, though he never saw his family again. His American debut took place on 12 January 1928, at Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Sir Thomas Beecham, who was also making his American debut. "It has been years," wrote Olin Downes in The New York Times, "since a pianist created such furor with an audience in this city." And that was in the days of Paderewski, Hofmann and Rachmaninoff.

Extractions: One of the most disputable musicians, possibly the greatest pianist of all times, Horowitz indisputably possess a technique transcedental and a temparament volatile. No one pianist has interested as much discussion and dispute among critics and music lovers. Sometimes, love and hatred coexist regarding the playing of this giant of the keyboard. His expressions were often damned exageration and he was accused of replacing himself for the composer. Nevertheless, his virtuosic gifts and revolutionary treatment of music could always be sure to stir up enthusiasm and admiration, though as a by-product, accusation.

Extractions: RCA 09026-62644-2 Horowitz was friendly with the Soviet consul stationed in New York (who defected some time around the early 50s) and, from that connection, premiered many contemporary Russian works. The Prokofieff transcriptions from his own Cinderella ballet proclaim that composer from the opening bars. Horowitz also gave the American premieres of Prokofieff's Sonatas 6 through 8, and left a blistering recorded account of #7. The Cinderella excerpts are slighter, although they work beautifully in the complete ballet, but still bewitching. The Kabalevsky aims for more and accomplishes less - curiously "faceless" music, at best a pale reflection of Shostakovich or the Prokofieff of the Sarcasms. Horowitz made these discs for his own use, so don't expect commercial-quality sound. A thin patina of crackles lies over every track. The Debussy in particular sounds like someone is crinkling cellophane in front of the mike. Still, if you can put up with "historic" sound in glorious mono (of course), this disc provides much of interest. Steve Schwartz Search Reviews Back to the Review Index

Extractions: Contact/E-mail Horowitz always wanted to become a composer, and even in his last years - with one of the most successful careers as a pianist in musical history behind him - he still felt frustrated he hadn't dedicated more of his life to composing. Horowitz's only known original compositions stem from his early years in Russia, but he kept toying with others music and made transcriptions and paraphrases all his life. This section is indended to throw some light on Horowitz's legacy as a pianist/composer. I have made an attempt to devide Horowitz's works in to seven categories, namely: But it should be pointed out that there's no clear line to separate them from eachother. To decide what should be included in each category isn't too obvious either as Horowitz did at least SOMETHING with nearly every work he ever played, but I have decided only to include works that are so different in Horowitz's performances that one can easily hear the difference from the original without any detailed studying of the score. The original composer's score, that is. Apart from the early original compositions and one of the Carmens, Horowitz never notated any of his works himself. I know most of them only through recordings, although some enthusiastic amateurs with sensitive ears and LARGE erasers have notated them on paper by listening to the recordings over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. One such enthusiast is pianist Dennis Gustafsson who has become something of an expert on Horowitz's transcriptions. Dennis has supervised my work with this section, and I owe him for a lot of valuable suggestions as well as insight in how these works were conceived and all the pianistic ingeniousness they contain.
