One of the most famous piano recitals of all time – given by the 82-year old Vladimir Horowitz, returning to his homeland of Russia after more than 60 years – now reappears for the first time at mid-price, specially re-released to mark the 30th anniversary of the April 1986 concert.

“The recording […] shows a master at work, a musician, a performer, sharing his enthusiasm for Scarlatti, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Chopin and others. Sparkling fingerwork, beautiful piano sound, commanding phrasing” Music Week, 22.11.1986

“Few have conjured from a piano such a palette of tonal colours with such convincing imagery and musical imagination as Horowitz does in this recital. The Mozart is witty and playful and if his Schubert and Chopin are, for my taste, somewhat fussy, with some Liszt, Rachmaninov and Scriabin he is on home territory. This is the real thing.” Gramophone Magazine

Horowitz Interview with Norman Pellegrini

Horowitz Interview with Thomas Willis


Vladimir Horowitz. Even more than twenty-five years after his death, his name still conjures up magical imagery. An artist of extraordinary pianistic abilities, Horowitz came to define an era, when performing artists put their personal stamp on everything they did. And Horowitz did it like no one else, before or since.

This CD set is taken from one of those concerts, a recital from Orchestra Hall, Chicago, on October 26, 1986. Here we hear him in his element, before a live audience. We may not be able to attend a Horowitz recital anymore, but this is the next best thing – with a little imagination, we can become part of the audience ourselves, and it’s just thrilling.

Horowitz performed in Chicago thirty-seven times in all, including twenty-seven solo recitals, starting in the year 1928. He was very popular there, and that popularity caused him to give repeat performances four times in the 1960s and 1970s, in order to reach as many patrons as possible. By 1986, he’d come up with perhaps a better plan: a concert that would be broadcast, as a gift to the city of Chicago. This concert marks the final time Horowitz played in Chicago.

“No one could imitate anything Horowitz did, and that’s particularly true of his Scarlatti, which combines lightness of action and the subtlest of pedalling...Schumann’s Arabeske, new to his DG output though by no means new to his discography as a whole, has a pearlescent beauty, a reactivity that gives new tints to the main theme each time it reappears...this is another compelling addition to the vast Horowitz legacy.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2016

“Recorded by WFMT’s engineers in 1986 during the pianist’s Indian summer, this fly-on-the-wall glimpse of Horowitz live is both welcome and enjoyable. Scarlatti and Mozart glitter; Schumann and Liszt compel: this is vintage stuff.” Classical Music, January 2016 ****

Kinderszenen, Op. 15


On 21 June 1987, before an ecstatic audience in Hamburg’s Musikhalle, 83-year-old Vladimir Horowitz gave the last concert of a career that stretched over nearly seven decades. The recital, taped by North German Radio (NDR), lay in their archives virtually untouched for more than 20 years (one encore was included in Deutsche Grammophon’s anthology The Magic of Horowitz in 2003). It is now being released in its entirety for the first time in any format. The repertoire is familiar, with Mozart and Schumann (Kinderszenen op. 15) to the fore. There is a last heroic assault on Chopin’s Polonaise in A flat op. 53 and the final scintillating encore is Moszkowski’s Etincelles, a Horowitz evergreen. The recording provides a unique souvenir of Horowitz’s final public appearance, where the sense of occasion and immediacy is palpable.

“One comes away dazzled by the unique sonority imagination and élan of this extraordinary musician.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2008

“In a programme of Mozart, Liszt, Schumann, Chopin, Schubert and Moszkowski, Vladimir Horowitz demonstrates his guiding principle that the piano should be made to sing. There is a beautifully shaped, lyrical quality to his playing, allied to intuitive musical characterisation and a magical sense of intimacy” The Telegraph, 16th August 2008

Londonderry Air

(arr. Hough)


“Stephen Hough fashions a viable programme culled from a bottomless piano bench of transcriptions, encores and other sundry ear-ticklers.
Indeed, Hough proves that one can make a well-balanced meal using only desserts. Modern pianists, to be sure, are more calorie conscious than their forebears, and Hough is no exception.
It's not his way to emphasise inner voices or linger over juicy modulatory patterns, à la Hofmann, Moiseiwitsch, Horowitz, Cortot or Cherkassky. If Hough prefers to bind Godowsky's garish counterpoints with skimmed milk rather than double cream, he's cheeky (and smart!) enough to insert his own ossias into Moskowski's Etincelles, or to retool the Tchaikovsky/ Pabst Sleeping Beauty Paraphrase to more brilliant pianistic effect. As in his previous 'Piano Albums', Hough serves up his own Rodgers & Hammerstein transcriptions. If the decorative note-spinning in 'Hello, Young Lovers' distracts from rather than enhances the eloquent original, the pianist's giddy romp through 'The Carousel Waltz' is a tour de force that brilliantly recaptures both the tender and tough-minded qualities inherent in the musical's book. Hough's own Etude de Concert gets plenty of finger-twisting mileage out of a rather un-memorable theme, harmonised, however, with clever Gershwinisms.
The unadorned Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky selections are played with heartfelt simplicity and a lean yet singing sonority.”

Fantasie in C major, D760 'Wanderer'


Philipp Kopachevsky (piano)

This new recording brings together three pianistic masterpieces which share a stylistic unity. Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy is based on a single motive, which is transformed in its 4 movements. This 'cyclic' principle was adopted by Liszt in his Piano Sonata in B minor, in which 3 characteristic motives are the basis of a half hour structure of epic proportions and emotions. But apart from these structural resemblances, the works on this disc are also eternal masterpieces of humanity, dealing with life and death.

Young (24 years) Russian Philipp Kopachevsky is one of the most remarkable pianists of his generation. His playing is of a rare maturity, understanding and imagination, his limitless technique is completely in the service of expressing his strong and original musical ideas. He has already played with conductors such as Mstislav Rostropovich, Valery Gergiev, Vladimir Spivakov, Mikhael Pletnev, Yuri Simonov and others. He is a First Prize winner of the Schubert Competition in Germany.

Following on from her hugely successful Chopin recordings, renowned Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska has recorded a personal selection of Liszt’s solo piano music.

“The playing is sheer bliss. If you buy one Chopin selection this year, make it Fialkowska’s” The Sunday Times

“The highlight of this disc is Chopin's Chants polonais - Fialkowska plays all six that Liszt transcribed, and blends drama with lyricism. Others may bring more intimacy, but this is classy playing. Liszt's transcription of the 'Gretchen' movement from A Faust Symphony is also colourful.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

“The Polish-Canadian plays from the heart...the reason to buy this CD is the Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude, a piece of extraordinary beauty that plays to Fialkowska’s strengths – her romantic sensibility, her sense of poetry, her unaffected artistry and knack of showcasing the music’s Chopin-esque brilliance.” Financial Times, 30th October 2011 *****

“The emphasis here is on variety within variety, on Liszt's generous and extraordinary response to other composers...Fialkowska takes the Faust Waltz by virtuouso storm...We need many more records from this master-pianist” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

“There’s not a dud moment in the recital. And this is impressive playing on any account, more so when you read that Fialkowska’s career was nearly derailed by a tumour discovered in her arm in 2002. After groundbreaking, successful treatment she resumed playing in 2004 and sounds better than ever. I think I’m now a paid-up Liszt fan.” The Arts Desk, 3rd March 2012

“an enchanting recital...The poise, spectrum of tone and sheer naturalness of her playing makes the Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude utterly compelling, the instinctive expressiveness of Liszt’s Chopin arrangements likewise...this is a disc to be treasured by admirers of elegant pianism.” The Telegraph, 11th November 2011 *****

“Liszt discs aren’t thin on the ground but this one stands out...the playing of these lesser-heard pieces is magical. Highlights are the sublime Bénédiction de Dieu dans la Solitude; the joyously rippling Chopin paraphrases, Six Chants Polonais; and Gretchen, the composer’s rapturous transcription of the slow movement from his Faust Symphony.” The Times, 22nd October 2011 ****

First off is a revelatory compilation of Liszt’s most daring and virtuosic piano music, a special celebration of his wild and crazy side from an array of great pianists – dazzling virtuosity, extreme harmonies and textures – a helter-skelter ride through his piano oeuvre, with just the occasional moment of relaxation.

From the first strumming chords of the First Mephisto Waltz to the spooky harmonies of La lugubre gondola and the obsessive threnody of Totentanz, a master of the instrument stands before us in all his glory.

Featured are such names as Géza Anda, Martha Argerich, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Jorge Bolet, Shura Cherkassky, Vladimir Horowitz, Zoltán Kocsis, Lang Lang, Alice Sara Ott, Mikhail Pletnev, Sviatoslav Richter and Yundi Li.

Rarities include four first releases on CD by Jean-Rodolfe Kars and Egon Petri – the latter aMasters of the Old School, with two incomparable performances of transcriptions (of Mozart’s Figaro and Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream) , guaranteed to bring the house down.
