Champagne & Caviar Concerto
Saturday, April 13, 2013
3:30- 5:30 p.m.
Crown Plaza Hotel – Cypress Ballroom
The legendary Steinway & Sons Model D Horowitz Piano comes to
as a part of its tour of North America.
The stunning piano is a nine-foot grand and one of Steinway’s most revered designs. This tour provides a rare opportunity for the public to see, hear, touch and even play the fabled piano that accompanied classical titan
Vladimir Horowitz (1903-1989) on tour to Moscow.
It was known to be one of Horowitz’s favorite instruments.
Horowitz, a Steinway Artist Immortal, is widely considered one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. His colorful personality and astounding performances enthralled audiences for decades. This Steinway Model ‘D’ was crafted in 1940. Horowitz used it in many recitals and recordings in the 70’s and 80’s, and he famously demanded that the piano be his exclusive touring instrument during the last four years of his life, including for his triumphant return to the former Soviet Union for performances in
Moscow and Leningrad in 1986.
