All Recordings: 1969-1989

A Chronological Index of Released & Unreleased Recordings: 1969-1989
Prepared and Compiled by Christian Johansson and Bernie Horowitz

 

 

 

 

The Recording Index on this website is an attempt to catalogue all surviving recordings of Horowitz. The index consists of two separate sections - one by composer -- the Alphabetical Section -- and another which lists the recordings in chronological order which is called the Chronological Section (separated into three categories, interviews, studio and live, and then all presented together). I have been more generous with discographical info in the Chronological Section as such would take up a lot of space in the section by composer and thus disturb the flow and readability of the page, but on the other hand the section by composer generally has more detailed info on specific recording dates and number of takes from commercial recording sessions where several takes recorded days - sometimes months - apart were used for the commercial release of a work. This is to reduce the number of notes & references to other sessions in the chronological section to a minimum.

The index as a whole aims to be as complete as possible, but even more importantly 100% accurate & reliable, and to achieve this I have used the following template when creating the index:

-  First of all I have only included recordings I am sure exist as I have a copy myself of the recording, or know someone trustworthy who does. I have not listed any recordings based on rumours alone.

-  Material from commercial recording sessions have been catalogued through the recording logs for the sessions, and through help from people with access to the actual tapes or discs in cases when the information given in the logs has been inadequate.

-  All dates and locations are given as they are known to me through my sources or through the fruits of my research. I have not made any guesses myself, and I have decided to leave assumptions to the reader.

-  Fragments of works from rehearsals, warm-ups, private sessions and similiar have been deemed irrelevant for the discography and have not been included. Notes relating to a few which might be of particular interest to collectors can be found in the Appendix at the end of the page.

All commercially released recordings are written in black and have a reference to the label & catalogue number of the issue in the alphabetical section. When recordings have appeared in more than one commercial issue only one catalogue number has been quoted (there are a few overlaps though as all commercial items included in the index have been listed in completion) - generally to the best, most recent, or most accessible release. All catalogue numbers refer to a CD release unless other is stated.

Material that has never appeared in any commercial release is written in grey, and have an indication in bold text to the type of the recording. There are seven kinds of commercially unreleased recordings, a description of each follows below.

Unreleased Recordings
These are recordings which were professionally recorded by Horowitz's record company at the time, but which have for some reason not been released. In most cases they have remained unreleased because Horowitz was dissatisfied with the recording and did not approve it for commercial release (and he was very picky), or (especially in the early recordings) because the recording engineer was dissatisfied with the technical quality of the recording and did not approve it for release. (Yes, both the artist's and the engineer's approval were required before a recording could be released.) Fortunately most, though not all, of these recordings are preserved in the vaults of the record company responsible for them, and we can only hope as many of them as possible will be released in due time now when they're not controlled as tightly by Horowitz or The Horowitz Estate anymore. The best way of pushing for this is to buy Horowitz's CDs and DVDs to show that there is a public interest in Horowitz's recordings and to provide funds for further releases.

Copying and ripping commercial CDs is *NOT* to support the record companies!!

Private Recordings
Somewhere duing the winter of 1944/1945 Horowitz signed a contract with Carnegie Hall's Recording Service to record his recitals there. The recitals were recorded completely, including encores, and pressed on LPs for Horowitz, who used them to study and analyze his playing. All Horowitz's recitals in Carnegie Hall except one were recorded between March 1945 and March 1951 when RCA took over instead. These are nowadays known as the "Yale Recitals" as Horowitz donated them to Yale University during the 1980s where they are still stored. In the past two years, more selected releases have followed. However, with the exception of March 5, 1951, the complete concerts remain unreleased and are referred to as Private Recordings in this index.

Radio Broadcasts or TV Broadcasts
These are recordings which have been recorded by radio and TV stations and are now preserved in their archives and/or on VHS or audio cassette tapes recorded from the broadcast by amateurs.

Amateur Acetates
From the 1930s and onwards it was actually possible to make private home recordings on a machine which could record a few minutes of sound on discs called acetates. These machines were very rare, did not produce recordings of particularly high quality, and probably cost a fortune in their day, but a young lady in Chicago on very good terms with Horowitz, Rachmaninoff, Kreisler, Cherkassky, Toscanini and a whole horde of other artists had access to one and used to recorded them in small mini-recitals for a set of a invited friends in her living room which she liked to arrange. So far, this lady's acetates are the only known ones with Horowitz.

Pirate Recordings
A pirate recording is a recording made by some innocent looking guy in the audience armed with a microphone, secretly and illegally recording the performance. To the best of my knowledge the first recordings of this kind started to appear in the New York area during the spring of 1965 (the first known pirate with Horowitz was recorded in New Haven on November 13, 1966), and then increased in number up to the early 1970s when tape recorders had become so small and so cheap that just about anyone could afford the equipment needed to tape a concert without any greater risk of being discovered. There are actually also a few video pirate recordings from the 1980s, made by someone who has managed to smuggle in a videocamera in the hall and have been brave enough to film from his seat, probably with a Bible in his free hand praying that no one will look his way.

Pirate Recordings vary from case to case in soundquality, from "quite good" all the way down to "only barely listenable" depending on which type of microphone and taperecorder that was used, the medium the recording was preserved on (always open reel tapes or cassettes in Horowitz's case, but of variable qualities & brands), where the microphone was placed during the recording, and how far from the stage the pirate was sitting. And of course also how many generations away from the mastertape the copy one has is as all of these have been passed around in analogue formats before CD burners were available & affordable to the average person.

A few pirate recordings have been released on CD by Palexa, Music & Arts and Living Stage, but most of them remain unavailable and only exist in private collections of tape collectors and fervent Horowitz enthusiasts.

Bootlegs
A bootleg is defined here as a professional recording that was made without permission from or even knowledge of Horowitz, his agent/manager, or his record company.

* A company called “Unitel” was hired to shoot a Vladimir Horowitz documentary in 1974. Howard Taubman was to have been the producer (or the executive producer). The first (and only) filming session was held on May 5. Horowitz played through the full program of his concert to be held the next Sunday in Cleveland.

 

Private tapes reveal that Wanda Horowitz became incensed by the way the Unitel camera crew conducted the filming on May 5. Specifically, she complained that the crew occupied many more rooms than agreed, used flood lights that were far too bright (causing Horowitz discomfort at the piano), and otherwise violated the terms to which she had agreed. Several days later, Wanda phoned Unitel in a rage, resulting in the cancelation of the second film session (scheduled for May 19), and ultimately the documentary itself.

 

The two selections from the May 5 film that have been released were included in “Horowitz: A Reminiscence” (2003).

There has been considerable confusion among collectors concerning the pirate recordings of May 12 (Cleveland) and June 2, 1974 (Washington). The two concerts have identical programs, including the encores. Confusingly, the Washington recital was and remains posted all over the internet as the Cleveland recital.

 

The problem occurred because of one the few omissions of Christian Johansson’s defunct Horowitz website; the Cleveland recital was listed, but the Washington recital wasn’t. Somebody probably matched the unidentified recital (because of the program and year) to Cleveland using Johansson’s website, and their initial mistake has now tortured countless collectors, who search for the elusive Washington recording, unaware they had it all along.

 

There is an easy way to distinguish between the two recordings. In the Washington recording, there’s some audience chatter at the beginning of the Polonaise-Fantasie (or it is cut off). This is not the case with the Cleveland recording.

Please note

There are many unreleased commercial recordings made between 1966 & 1989 that are yet to be catalogued, and there are probably also more pirate recordings hiding in music enthusiasts' private collections that I have not found yet or that have never been in circulation among collectors. An index as this one will never be entirely complete, it can't be, but I will do my best to update it as soon as I find or get info for new recordings to make it as complete, reliable and up to date as possible.

 

 

 

Appendix

Notes for collectors on non-commercial items

 

I can confirm the existence of the following pirate recordings, which are currently not in my collection:

 

·         October 20, 1968: Rochester, New York

·         April 25, 1976: Salle Wilfrid Pelletier, Place des Arts, Montreal, Canada

·         October 7, 1985: Carnegie Hall, New York City, New York

·         June 7, 1987: Berlin, Germany

 

 

It is almost certain that additional pirate recordings exist that I have yet to encounter. There are numerous concerts during this period (see "concertography") for which I am not aware of any recordings.

 

 

If you should have any of these in your collection, please contact bernie10025@yahoo.com

On top of the videos included in the index above with Horowitz there are also various video clips from the 1980s which were taped by enthusiasts from the local news and various similar shows which has new material. All I have come across only contain brief excerpts however, and that's the reason I decided not to include them in the recording index. There is said to have been a news broadcast on TV in the states in the late 1970s which contained the complete Black-Key Etude by Chopin though, but it does not seem to have been taped and I have not been able to find out whether a copy was preserved in the TV station's archive.

Below is a list of these news broadcasts and similar which I have come across. Not very important for the discography, but perhaps of interest for the serious collector, fervent enthusiast, or scholar.

Whether the source material used to compile these broadcasts has survived or not I don't know, but if it has there are some rather tantalizing videos locked up at TV archives around the world. These would include among other things complete recitals from Chicago 1977, Milan 1985, Carnegie Hall 1986, White House 1986, Amsterdam 1987 and others, rehearsals from Carnegie Hall 1985 & Moscow 1986, as well as many, many hours of video footage made in Horowitz's home on December 26, 1977 for the 60 Minutes show.

 

According to Christian Johansson, the following unreleased recordings have leaked in the last decade, reaching a few collectors (but not me). These are:

 

·         Poulenc: Presto in B-flat major (1946)

·         Scarlatti: Sonata in G major, K.455 (1947)

·         Scarlatti: Sonata in E major, K.380 (1947)

·         Scarlatti: Sonata in F-sharp major, K.319 (1947)

·         Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition (1947)

 

Christian notes:

"The dates for these are however highly questionable, with the exception of Mussorgsky. This in particular as RCA's logs show no record of having recorded most of these works during the given year. The Mussorgsky must be from 1947, but whether it is the unreleased May 15 recording or alternate takes (or for that matter, issued takes) of the commercial release still needs to be looked up."

 

There are live recordings from the early 1950s of the 2nd movement from Bach's F minor Concerto as well as his Chorale Prelude "Nun freut euch, lieben Christen" (BWV 734) in circulation that have been attributed to Horowitz. The actual pianist is yet to be identified, but it is sadly not Horowitz playing.

 

Two unedited recording sessions where Horowitz plays extracts from Chopin's Op.10 No.4 Etude and the 3rd movement of Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata have leaked out and are in general circulation among collectors. They both stem from the early 1970s, but no one seems to know exactly from which session. An educated guess however would be that the Beethoven one is taken from December 20, 1972 and Chopin either from February 8 or February 15, 1973 - both recorded for CBS in their 30th Street Studio in New York City.

 

Two versions of the Beethoven session circulates however - one of them has some 2 minutes more material than the other.

 

Although many rehearsals, warm-ups and other practice sessions have been recorded with Horowitz over the years both professionally and by amateurs, only two have reached general circulation among collectors as far as I know - the February 25 1978 rehearsal for the White House recital the following day, and the semi-public April 18 1986 rehearsal at the Moscow Conservatory.

Christian Johansson and I are both deeply grateful to Caine Alder & Robert McAlear for
their corrections & additions to the unreleased commercial recording sessions. I’d also like to thank Robert Ginalski and Joe Patrych for their extensive input, and Christian himself for contributing his research.
