5.0 out of 5 stars The maestro at the height of his maturity. 10 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
This 6-CD set contains all the recordings that Vladimir Horowitz made during the last five years of his life, including the historic concert he did in Moscow in 1986, three years before his death in 1989. Truly at the height of his maturity, these recordings breathe love, consolation, compassion, vitality, and many other feelings you'd associate with true artistic heights. At this budget price, this is excellent value for money. There's even a Mozart concerto he recorded with an orchestra in 1986. From the first track, the Bach prelude, to the last track, a live performance of the Schumann Kinderszenen, this virtuoso performances are mesmerising and healing to the soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless Horowitz 3 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
No 20th Century pianist has such a unique hallmark as Vladimir Horowitz, no one is so incomparable, so supremely self-indulgent, so divinely soaring above all the pianistic "rules", nowadays considered necessary to make a decent playing. Sudden changes of rhythm and tempo, unintentional lapses, frolics and whims,unexpected persussion explosions in the bass, incredible silver glitter in the treble, naive simplicity or amazing virtuosity - and whatever he made, he always made it the right way, and always, like a cat, landed on all four feet, in an artistic glory, seldom heard (and seen)!
Horowitz' whole register is exuberantly demonstrated by the six CDs of this box: "Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon", all produced after his magnificent return to the concert hall in the 1980s. Mozart is, perhaps a bit astonishingly, in the center, in relaxed, humble and distinctly perfect interpretations: the Concerto No 23 in A major (with a very discreet, almost pedestrian accompaniment from Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala under Carlo Maria Giulini, tenderly considerate behind the matchless piano maestro), three Sonatas (one of them is doubled, Horowitz rarely played identical versions), one Adagio and one Rondo, all of it solely worth the price of the box. Also Schubert is generously represented - with - among other things - the great Sonata in B flat major D960 in an unforgettable and unparalleled version, and so is Schumann - both "Kreisleriana" and "Kinderszenen" are extremely enjoyable highlights here. Furthermore, of course Chopin, and Liszt (Valse oubliée No 1 makes a stupendous impression!), and Russian composers like Rachmaninov and Scriabin, and some sonatas by Scarlatti, and a Bach/Busoni. A tremendous offering, indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horowitz the Master of the Keyboard 10 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
Horowitz always surprises and amazes with the mastery of his rendition. This collection of his expertise is a delight to listen to. I believe it is a very worthwhile addition to anyones collection of keyboard mastery. However, I remain amazed at the impudence and lack of thought so called enthusiasts display when they have the nerve to cough through his recitals. This is particularly noticeable during the Schuman Kinderszenen on disc 6. Naturally, during any live performance there is an element of risk, but these interuptions go beyond the pale. However, despite this, the collection is a joy to listen to, and a sad reminder of true genius lost to us. I recommend the set, excellent playing throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horowitz: A Digital Legacy 15 Nov 2004
By MLao - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This set includes all of the recordings Vladimir Horowitz did for Deutsche Grammophon in the 1980s, including his historical concert in Moscow.
While the context of his return in Moscow is moving, the studio recordings are simply wonderful. The sound quality is impeccable. The Steinway piano sounds warm but yet crisp and sharp. Horowitz still has plenty of power, and if you don't have a good sound system, you will notice that your speakers will literally fail, due to the overwhelming wall of sound that Horowitz creates in the intense parts.
The tender moments are just as exciting, as they are enhanced by the very quiet and clear digital recording process. Liszt's Standchen and Mozart's Piano Concerto No 23 are only two of a myriad of highlights contained on this boxed set. Having these high quality digital recordings of this piano legend is a blessing that you can't afford to miss. And at this price, it's simply irresistible.
For those of you with a larger budget, don't forget the complete masterworks recordings (1962-73) of Vladimir Horowitz on Sony Classical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horowitz - The Last Romantic 2 July 2008
By Christopher Kosloske - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to find this collection used for only 20 bucks, and I would easily pay more for it. This set contains the albums Horowitz at Home, Horowitz in Moscow, Horowitz plays Mozart, The Last Romantic, Horowitz the Poet, and the 1985 studio recordings. All of the music is superb and you will see it frequently released in Horowitz compilation cds. I highly recommend this collection for any Horowitz lover or as a collection to get into Horowitz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now a Sensational Bargain for Horowitz Fans! 16 Jan 2010
By Doug - Haydn Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For reasons perhaps reflecting what may very well be a coming collapse of classical music pricing and distribution, bargains of an almost too good to be true nature continue to emerge on Amazon. This certainly is one! With the already very reasonable price slashed by half, you can now purchase all six Horowitz discs making up his recordings for DG for a little over twenty-five dollars. It's a buyer's market!

This set includes the famous Moscow Concert, a number of selections of pieces Horowtiz did very well, including Schumann, Liszt, Chopin, Scarlatti, and Scriabin, and even includes a Mozart Concerto, with large-scaled backing by Giulini. By this time in his career Horowitz plays more reflectively; the huge passionate outbursts of his salad days, with thunderous dynamics and blazing tempos are not the main attraction. One should absolutely not expect the reincarnation of, say, live concerts with Horowitz and Toscanini! Instead, perhaps channeling late Liszt, Horowitz seems at his best here when playing music requiring reflection and poetry.

Of course, this IS still Horowitz the virtouso - despite his age at the time of these recordings, around eighty - there's still plenty of pyrotechnics, though I find them more careful, and with a few bald spots showing through when he strives for more full sonorites and explosions. Opinions differ on the DG sound - Horowitz apparently never made life easy for the engineers, and there is some variance here, with some of the results not at all the equal of the best modern recordings.

If you don't yet have the Cd of the legendary return to Moscow Concert, or any of Horowitz's other late DGs, this is a great chance to hear them at an extremely modest cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply ravishing - but a better version has become available 16 Dec 2010
By Hank Drake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Vladimir Horowitz who emerged from retirement in 1985 was a very different pianist and musician than the one who had disappeared in 1983. Long gone were the leonine fortissimos and hysteria of the 1940s; also purged was the eccentricity that became a dominating factor in the 1970s; Horowitz had replaced these with a new balance and simplicity. He was never a puritan thank goodness, but "controlled freedom" (as Harold Schonberg phrased it) became the hallmark of the playing of Horowitz's last few years.

The highlights of this set are too numerous to list in toto, but a few standouts are 1985's Kreisleriana, much of the Moscow recital, Mozart's Sonatas K. 281 and 333, and the Schubert-Liszt works - especially Standchen, which may well be Horowitz's best post-1980 recording. Other recordings fall into a middle ground: Mozart's K. 330 Sonata (the live 1986 slightly preferable to the dryish 1985 version), and the K. 488 Concerto with Giulini (demoted from a top recommendation due to the non-descript, tonally un-alluring orchestra). Schubert's D. 960 Sonata, rejected by Horowitz and issued posthumously, is a fussy, contrived performance that should have remained in the vault as the pianist wished.

Unavoidably, in view of the varying locations, the quality of recorded sound varies - from the constricted, dry sonority of The Last Romantic to the atmospheric quality of the 1985 Studio Recordings. Most occupy a middle ground - clearly focused, but far from the "microphone in the piano" sound of RCA's late 1970s recordings.

Potential buyers should be aware that, for relatively little extra cost, a newer version of this compilation is available that includes the 1987 Hamburg recital (Horowitz's last) and a few bonus tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete Horowitz for a reasonable price 13 Mar 2012
By Jose Mario Serra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In a few words: fantastic interpretations of the greatest classical and romantic pianist ever, period.
These DG recording sessions reflects Horowitz's most "mature" period, at his "plenitude", where we can listen to a right-handed phrasing capable of transport us to the "music heaven". Of course, all these recordings are available as separate albums, but here we have an opportunity of grab all DG albums in a convenient boxset. Specially recommended to newbies or as a replacemnet of previous versions (scratched LPs, damaged CDs or as a backup for your car's CD-changer.
