Happy Birthday, Maestro Horowitz!
Vladimir Horowitz, who was born on October 1st (September 18th O.S.) 1903, perhaps, is the most paradoxical virtuoso musician of the twentieth century. There are thousands of articles, reviews, annotations, books and scientific conferences, which are dedicated to him... Probably, there is no one pianist of the past century who received as much attention and esteem as Horowitz. He is the king of kings! The musical twentieth century was consecrated by his name! He will forever be in our hearts!
