Discography & Videography

Horowitz's Recordings Listed by Record Company & Genre
Prepared & Compiled by Christian Johansson

 

 

This is the section one should consult if trying to decide which Horowitz CD/DVD to buy next. All commercial items listed in the Alphabetical Recordings section, and a few others as well, can be found below listed item by item after record company. All items are CDs unless other is indicated, and the LPs and 78s that are included below are only there as the recordings they hold have not been reissued on CD yet. The list below incorporates all Horowitz's commercially released recordings, but it does not yet contain all small-label reissues with duplicates. The links do not work at the moment, but I am working on correcting this problem. Repairing them is no small job.

 


Dear Reader,

Vladimir Horowitz was one of the most prolific recordings artists of the 20th Century.  He began recording during the era of the Piano Roll, through 78RPM discs, the era of the LP, the dawn of stereo, and endured well into the age of digital recordings and the compact disc. Nearly all of these recordings have been reissued on compact disc, and most of the piano rolls have been transferred to the more modern player systems. His discography is a rich and varied treasure.  It is also problematic for the recording connoisseur.  Few of VH’s recordings from any time period truly capture his sound, although many are quite acceptable and even beautiful on their own terms.  This is not a matter of technology, but primarily one of acoustics and microphone placement. Because so many of VH’s recordings were “live”, recording engineers tended to favor an “under the lid” microphone placement.  This allowed them to edit between various performances in different halls without the listener's ear being distracted by audible splices. Unfortunately, this resulted in a harsh, unpleasant sound, which emphasized mistakes and often made VH’s interpretations sound excessively violent.  Indeed, many of VH’s recordings from the late 1940s are more pleasing to the ear and more realistic sounding than examples from the ‘70s.

I only heard VH in concert once.  October 19, 1986, in Symphony Hall in Boston (a locale VH especially liked) was a memorable day for me.  He played his program of Scarlatti, Mozart, Scriabin, Schumann, Schubert, Liszt, Chopin & Moszkowski extraordinarily well, projecting every nuance to the back of the hall, where I sat. Wrapped in that sound, I realized that few recordings came close to capturing that sonority.  Those that do will receive a special mention in these reviews.

I am flattered and delighted that Christian Johansson has asked me to submit some of my thoughts on Vladimir Horowitz' recorded legacy. With the online publication, at last, of Horowitz' complete discography, Christian has done a great service to Horowitz fans and the musical world. We can only hope that the publication of so much useful information, including the listing of Horowitz' numerous unreleased recordings languishing in the vaults of various recordings companies, will someday lead to their possible release.

A note about the reviews: Most of these I originally submitted to Amazon.com, where I have written reviews on everything from Horowitz, to Arthur Rubinstein, to various other classical artists and films.  Some are appearing here for the first time.  As the representation of my thoughts on Horowitz and the music he plays, they are strictly my own opinion, and my own responsibility.  One of the joys of great music and unique performances it that it unleashes an infinite diversity of thought and opinions, which, when discussed freely, openly, and civilly, lead to greater enlightenment for all.

Therefore, show yourself to be more human than critical, and your pleasure will thus increase.


Live Happily,

Hank Drake

Note: One further recital was probably recorded in 1945 (April 23), but it seems as if Horowitz broke the discs. There were probably also some concerto performances recorded for Horowitz's private use by the CH Recording company, there is a Brahms Concerto from 1948 locked up at yale too for instance which most likely is a private recording. If so, there are probably at least two further concerto performances stored there as well.
