Concertography

A listing of Horowitz's concerts as a professional pianist


Prepared and Compiled by Christian Johansson and Bernie Horowitz


 

 

This section is intended to serve as an index to the interested of Horowitz's recital programs and concert appearances during the years. The list is of course not complete, but it contains all Horowitz concerts I am aware of between his Graduation Concerts at the Kiev Consertvatory in 1920 and his last public appearance in June 1987. 

It should be noted that Horowitz took no less than four retirements from the concert stage during his life. These were between the years 1936-1938, 1953-1965, 1969-1974 and 1983-1985. This is not the place to explain the reason for his sabbaticals, but the explanation why there are no concerts listed for 1937, 1954-1964, 1970-1973 or 1984 is simply that Horowitz didn't give any.

The programs have been gathered from reliable sources unless otherwise is stated, and most of them first hand even from photocopies of the actual concert programs. All programs are given as complete as possible, including orchestral works whenever available from the concerts Horowitz gave together with an orchestra. In a few of the recitals the order of the program or the exact location of the intermission has not been preserved and I have then made an (I hope) educated guess of my own and written the works in the order which I think Horowitz performed them in and placed the intermission where I would have placed it if I was Horowitz. In 95% of the programs, however, full info has been preserved and is reproduced here exactly as given in my sources.

Information about encores has usually been taken from reviews in the concerts up to 1953 and it is thus possible that Horowitz played more encores than those I list. In the concerts after 1965 (no concerts 1954-1964) information about encores usually comes from pirate recordings (almost every concert Horowitz gave from 1966 and onwards was illegaly recorded by members in the audience), verified by reviews & professional and thus guaranteed complete recordings whenever possible.

    - There is some conflicting information regarding the program for this recital. This above is according to Glenn Plaskin and an interview with Horowitz by Harold C. Schonberg in the 1980s. However, a quote from a review of a recital in Philadelphia held on January 15, 1942 runs:

"... on May 30, 1920, he made a trial debut in his native city. He still remembers the program - Bach/Busoni Chaconne, a group of Chopin, six Etudes by Rachmaninoff, six Etudes by his teacher [Felix von Blumenfeld]. His formal debut however, took place in Kharkov a year and a half later..........."

* I think that is the year, it's difficult to read from the program.

- An excerpt from a review of this concert is worth quoting:
    "Horowitz, playing yesterday at Orchesta Hall, set standards for the piano and its litterature which no virtuoso of the present has equaled. Not only is his command of the resources of the instrument more extended than any the world has heard since Busoni was at the zenith of his powers, but the qualities of pianistic imagination which have developed this amazing control are such that he has advanced frontiers and boundaries for the whole art.
    This imparts to his playing an impression of adventure, of new worlds conquered, of still other realms of beauty, more remote, that are about to be discovered. It matters little with what type of music he may concern himself."  ("Unequalled Today", Glenn Dillard Gunn)

* This is listed as an Etude in D-flat major from Op.25, which would have made it No.8.... To the very best of my knowledge this Etude was not in Horowitz's repertoire though, I am almost sure this is an error and that they actually meant this Etude in G-flat major.

    [Encores Unknown]

- This recital is interesting in a number of ways. First of all as it according to the program is the first performance of Horowitz's revision of Danse Macabre (can we trust this? We know Horowitz had played the work just three days prior to this concert in Philadelphia (see above), presumably - but not surely - also in VH's own version), secondly as it also according to the actual program had TWO intermissions (before & after Prokofiev), and finally as this was Chicago's premiére of Prokofiev's 6th Sonata - the city had never heard it before.

- One source of information claims this concert probably was without encores "as the program was not well received". But while the encores are unknown, the program was *very* enthusiastically received according to the NY Times.
Furthermore, the concert was first labeled to me as being from April 15 - that date is apparently wrong, and the only NY concert in April was this one on April 5. 

According to an announcement from the stage the concert gathered more than $10 500 for the American Red Cross.

April 2, 1951: Chicago, Illinois


    [Program included Prokofiev's 7th Sonata]

- An excerpt from a review of this concert is worth quoting:

    ".....the phenomenon is the concentration of superhuman energy in this man who seems compelled to loose it only through the piano. He is a compressed steel spring needing release, who may not simply burst open but must focus and control the release through the keys of a piano. Sometimes - at the end of Prokofiev's 7th Sonata, for example - you wonder if the controls will hold, and half fear that Horowitz will disintigrate before your eyes in a cosmic shattering. At those moments the proportion and sense of music is lost, the notes are no longer heard (rest assured they are all played) and the experience is of an almost unbearably charged abstract violence."

- This was the only time Horowitz structured a program that included the Liszt Sonata in such a fashion. The unedited recording likely explains what happened: Horowitz opens the Sonata with a plethora of wrong notes. Then, his playing improves. Perhaps Horowitz felt that in the case of the Liszt Sonata, he required a warm-up beforehand. From this point on, he always programmed another piece in front of it.

February 4, 1979: Los Angeles, California

Canceled, along with concerts scheduled for February 18 in Los Angeles and February 24 in San Diego -- Horowitz was ill from complications from the surgery to remove his prostate gland.

The Los Angeles Times (January 5, 1979) noted:

"Vladimir Horowitz has canceled his forthcoming West Coast tour, including recital dates February 4 and 18 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and February 24 at the Civic Theater in San Diego. The legendary pianist, 74, entered a New York hospital Dec.3 for what was believed at the time to be minor surgery. He remained at the hospital until Dec.22, hwoever, after it was discovered that his condition was complicated by a kidney ailment.”

 

 

 

March 18, 1979: Atlanta, Georgia


  
  Clementi: Sonata in C major, Op.33 No.3
    Schumann: Humoreske, Op.20

    Rachmaninoff: Humoresque, Op.10 No.5
    Liszt: Consolation No.3 in D-flat major
    Liszt/Busoni/Horowitz: Mephisto Waltz No.1


    [4 Encores, including Chopin's Waltz in C-sharp minor Op.64 No.2 and last, Rachmaninoff's Polka de WR]

- Second half is incomplete, more pieces by Rachmaninoff were played, and even a work of Scriabin, left unspecified by the review in the Atlanta Constitution. Oddly, this appears to have been the only concert of the season in 1979 in which Horowitz put Scriabin on the program or in the encores.
