For Purity and Pyrotechnics, Pianist Vladimir Horowitz Stood Alone for Seven Decades
Born into a musical family in the Ukraine, Horowitz began piano lessons at 3 and, at 22, launched himself into the world with a two-year tour of Europe. Married for 56 years to conductor Arturo Toscanini's daughter Wanda, under whose stern hand he produced 150 albums, Horowitz came full circle in 1986, returning triumphantly to Leningrad for the first time in 61 years for a concert whose recording brought him the last of his 23 Grammys. To the end, some found his electric interpretations stylistically arrogant, but Horowitz had a reply. The trick, he said, was in playing more than the notes, in finding "the music behind those dots." It was the Thunderer's wizardry to make everyone hear the unimagined music he found in that empyrean.
