Notes & Reviews:

In 1988, Vladimir Horowitz donated to Yale University a treasure trove of original recordings composed of Carnegie Hall concerts and performances he gave during the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Until now these recordings have never before been available to the public... Horowitz employed an engineer to make 78-rpm recordings of his Carnegie Hall concerts in this period, and he used them to review and judge his performances. Most of these mono recordings were originally contained on 12 and 16-inch acetate discs. They have been impeccably mastered, with the sound restored, from new transfers made in the Yale archives. The first Private Collection release features Horowitz in thrilling performances of a pair of thundering keyboard epics from the romantic age - Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition' and Liszt's 'Sonata in B Minor'. Two more Private Collection releases are scheduled to follow in the fall and early 2010.
