Renowned pianist Vladimir Horowitz performs compositional works by Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann.
Any attempt to define the qualities of Vladimir Horowitz usually begin and end in a sea of superlatives. His 'ne plus ultra' virtuosity earned Horowitz his reputation as the "Liszt of our age". Commemorating the 30th anniversary of his death (5th November), Deutsche Grammophon reissues four of his legendary recordings on vinyl, including his three-time Grammy Award-winning 1985 Studio Recordings; and releases for the first time ever on vinyl Horowitz's last recital in Hamburg.
