Remembering Vladimir Horowitz

In the last three years of pianist Vladimir Horowitz’s life, he was forever being labeled the last Romantic virtuoso. “As a younger generation of cooler-headed, more intellectual pianists came to the fore, Horowitz came to be regarded as a lovable dinosaur. The truth, as demonstrated by an outpouring of Horowitz films and CD’s re-released in honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth, is that he was that rare artist who sums up nothing but himself.”
