The 23rd Anniversary of Horowitz's Moscow recital is coming

Postby Horowitzian » Wed Apr 08, 2009 5:15 am

on the 20th. so I thought I would honor the occasion by pulling together all the videos from it that are available.

This is the program, from Christian Johanssen's wonderful site ( ), in the Concertography section:

1. Scarlatti: Sonata in B minor, K.87

2. Scarlatti: Sonata in E major, K.380

3. Scarlatti: Sonata in E major, K.135

4. Mozart: Sonata in C major, K.330

5. Rachmaninoff: Prelude in G major, Op.32 No.5

6. Rachmaninoff: Prelude in G-sharp minor, Op.32 No.12

7. Scriabin: Etude in C-sharp minor, Op.2 No.1
8. Scriabin: Etude in D-sharp minor, Op.8 No.12

9. Schubert: Impromptu in B-flat major, Op.142 No.3

10. Liszt: Soirée de Vienne No.6 (after Schubert)

I could not find video of the Moscow version; the Vienna performance will have to suffice:

11. [b]Liszt: Sonetto 104 del Petrarca

12. Chopin: Mazurka in C-sharp minor, Op.30 No.4
13. Chopin: Mazurka in F minor, Op.7 No.3

14. Chopin: Polonaise in A-flat major, Op.53


1. Schumann: Träumerei, Op.15 No.7

2. Moszkowski: Etincelles, Op.36 No.6

Moscow version not available, substituted the Vienna performance:

3. Rachmaninoff: Polka de W.R. (audio only)
