Notes and Editorial Reviews

Specially Priced 6-CD Set!

Here are the complete recordings that Vladimir Horowitz made for Deutsche Grammophon in a single boxed set at budget price (minus the few bonus tracks found on the "Magic of Horowitz" compilation and the 2008 release of Horowitz in Hamburg - The Last Concert). This is an irresistible package and portrait of Horowitz in his later years. All of the individual discs created quite a bit of attention upon their release and most of them remain bestsellers in the DG catalog today. Don't miss the opportunity to get this collector's edition at such a bargain price!

"This June 21, 1987 recital from Hamburg capped Vladimir Horowitz's last European tour and proved to be his final public performance. It confirms what we know of the relaxed, poetic style characterizing the veteran pianist's late-period DG recordings. Thoroughly enjoyable, and very well recorded too.” -- Jed Distler, ClassicsToday.com
