Notes and Editorial Reviews

Vladimir Horowitz’s legendary 1986 recital in Moscow was the then 81-year-old pianist’s first recital in Russia since he left the Soviet Union 61 years before – it was an immense success, as was Deutsche Grammophon’s ‘live’ recording of the concert; now available again on 180-gram vinyl, including an 4-page insert with all liner notes and photos from the original release. The acclaimed performance, and CBS’ TV Broadcast revitalized Horowitz’ career and made him, again, a household name.
