Vladimir Horowitz - Complete Original Jacket Collection (Part. III, cd. 43-60)

Though his performances still provoke controversy and debate about their ­musical worth, Vladimir Horowitz (1903-1989) was one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. After he made his debut in the US in 1928, Horowitz recorded ­almost exclusively for RCA Victrola, and, from the 1960s onwards, for Columbia Records (CBS) before returning to RCA in his final years. Now that the labels are part of the same group, Sony Music, all the ­recordings can be brought ­together in a ­magnificent set in the Sony Original Jacket Collection, in which each of the 70 CDs is an exact transfer of an LP and packaged in a scaled-down ­facsimile of the original sleeve.
Though the set contains duplications, Schumann's Kinderszenen, ­Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and a few Chopin miniatures, it includes some ­extra­ordinary ­performances. Many are ­familiar. Horowitz's albums of works by Scriabin, for instance, have never been equalled for their savagery and ­intensity, his ­accounts of Rachmaninov's Third ­Concerto — the first from 1951 with Fritz Reiner conducting, the second from 1978 with Eugene Ormandy — are still the benchmarks against which to measure all others, while the clarity and ­crystalline purity of his Scarlatti sonatas ­remain breathtaking. Others are less well known. Horowitz ­accompanying ­Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in ­Schumann's Dichterliebe at New York's Carnegie Hall in 1976 was new to me, while some of the earliest material, from before the second world war when Horowitz was still a high-­octane virtuoso who revelled in the most brilliant showpieces, reveals an ­almost superhuman technique.
It would be misleading to claim that the fine qualities of Horowitz's playing extended to everything he played. The Viennese classics, for instance, never brought out the best of him, and the performances here of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven's sonatas have a cool precision but bring no real insights, though there is a titanic strength to his account of Brahms's Second Piano ­Concerto from 1940, with Toscanini. Yet in the romantic repertoire, his elegance, unrivalled range of touch and colour and sheer bravura panache are instantly ­recognisable; there's a wealth of truly great piano playing here, of a kind that simply doesn't exist today.
