Many individuals consider Vladimir Horowitz as a Russian-American pianist. However that isn’t the case. Horowitz was born on October 1, 1904 in Kyiv. He studied on the Conservatory there earlier than beginning a profession that took him the world over.
Hearken to Horowitz Play Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen on Classical Archives
We may have chosen recordings from the Classical Archives library of Horowitz taking part in Rachmaninov, Chopin or Liszt (to call only a few selections). As an alternative, we determined that it could be excellent to listen to him play Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen (“Scenes from Childhood”).
There’s something so proper about listening to those items at the moment. When Horowitz performed these items, was he fascinated with his childhood in Kyiv? Will Kyiv ever return to the sort of idyllic innocence that pervades these wondrous items?
We fervently hope so and we invite you to hitch us in our needs and prayers.
Please be aware: Classical Archives members could hearken to this musical choice in its entirety.
