Vladimir Horowitz was not especially well regarded as a Beethoven interpreter, but II Allegro Vivace E Leggero - Vladimir Horowitz - Vladimir Horowitz Plays Great Sonatas album may well be an exception which proves the rule.
These performances, taped inwere Horowitz's first stereo recording. The sound has been opened up and the dynamic range greatly increased. The recording was made in Carnegie Hall emptyand the rumbling of the subway trains underneath the The Captain Of Her Heart - Laurent Voulzy - La Septième Vague has been largely removed - something that was II Allegro Vivace E Leggero - Vladimir Horowitz - Vladimir Horowitz Plays Great Sonatas major problem with the Gold Seal version.
Horowitz had performed the Beethoven Sonata in D, Op. The first movement is taken at a fast tempo, with some drawn out ritards at climaxes. The rhythmic vitality of Horowitz's performance, The Poison - Terrolokaust - Spit The Poison Out his capturing of Beethoven's humor, are a delight.
The slow movement, Largo e Mesto, is taken at a tempo referred to as "heroically slow" in the liner notes, but the movement sounds normally paced to early 21st century ears - an excellent example of how tempos have generally slowed in recent decades.
The last two movements are played in a straightforward manner, but notable for their sparse use of the sustaining pedal. Horowitz seemed more comfortable in Beethoven's well known "Appassionata" than in many other of the composer's solo works - although he never played it in public after the s. This recording gives us a sober Horowitz concentrating on the structure, rather than the drama of the first movement - no heart on sleeve hysteria here!

But Horowitz tends to get caught up in detail, rather than maintaining forward motion. His Sony recording, made inis more successful in this respect. The LP's original cover art and liner notes are reproduced. See all 2 customer reviews.
