“KING OF THE KINGS OF PIANISTS” VLADIMIR GOROVITS

The 20th century can be safely called the century of the great pianists: Paderevsky, Hoffmann, Rachmaninoff, Richter, Rubinstein, Kempff … The list goes on and on. But over all these geniuses, both for a simple lover and for a professional music historian, another name rises – Vladimir Horowitz.
