Notes and Editorial Reviews

The years that Vladimir Horowitz spent as an exclusive artist with Columbia Masterworks from 1962 to 1973 represented a kind of artistic rebirth for the great pianist. After a self-imposed retirement from public life, Horowitz embarked on a series of studio recordings that not only showed his legendary virtuosity was intact, but also revealed the presence of even riper musicianship and a more mellow (yet no less demonic) temperament. Doubtless the critical and popular success of his first four Columbia albums bolstered the pianist's confidence and played no small part in his decision to resume concertizing for the first time in 12 years. Just as Horowitz's recital programs evolved from an agonizing selective process, the pianist paid Read more equally fastidious attention to the content, programming, sonic quality, and packaging of his Columbia LP releases. No edited test pressings, cover art, or liner notes could pass without the pianist's final approval. For these reasons alone, Sony's "Original Jacket" Horowitz edition has value. It replicates nine Horowitz LP releases, from the music itself down to the jacket spine.

Bearing in mind that Sony's "Original Jacket" Glenn Gould Bach collection boasted slightly superior transfers to their 20-bit counterparts in the label's Glenn Gould Edition, I made similar comparisons between the present release and Sony's 1993 boxed set devoted to Horowitz's complete Masterworks recordings. Even after synchronizing two matching CD players plugged into first-rate sound equipment, I could discern little if any sonic difference switching back and forth between the sets. So it all boils down to packaging and presentation. The Complete Masterworks Recordings can be purchased in separate volumes, and for the most part they offer more music per disc. Its "Horowitz Plays Scarlatti" disc, for instance, reproduces the pianist's 1964 Scarlatti LP intact, yet amends the original 12 selections with an additional six Scarlatti sonatas recorded during these sessions but not released until after Horowitz's death in 1989.

The "Original Jacket" facsimile, of course, offers no extra goodies. What's most important, however, is the music, and no piano lover can afford to miss some of the extraordinary artistry gracing these discs. There's the gauntly elegant Chopin A-flat Polonaise, plus the same composer's rarely heard Introduction and Rondo Op. 16, enlivened by Horowitz's impeccably timed runs and insouciant rhythm. For the pianistic equivalent of atom smashing go to Scriabin's Vers la flamme, or the leanest, most galvanizing account of Rachmaninov's Second Piano Sonata I know. Few other pianists have managed to make the thick textural underbrush of Schumann's Kreisleriana sound so pliable and alive, while the celebrated 1965 "Historic Return" remains the most satisfying and musically three-dimensional account of a full-length Horowitz recital issued to the public. Unlike the previous Gould and Stravinsky "Original Jacket" collections, the Horowitz box includes no multi-media component, but the booklet sports several unpublished photos along with the full liner notes for some but not all of the original releases.
