Gramophone Magazine

June 2008

“No pianist played closer to the edge than Vladimir Horowitz. And here, in this invaluable reissue of performances dating from 1949-57, you are once more made aware of that elemental violence and caprice that could leave his audiences in a state of stupefaction, provoked and seduced by his charismatic force and wicked ways. ”

BBC Music Magazine

June 2008

****

“Horowitz delivers an unusually expansive but structurally convincing account of the first movement of the Second Sonata. Another highlight is the grandiose performance of he Barcarolle.”
