Our recent Horszowski CD with the 1940 Vatican Radio recital appears in today's La Stampa. Allan Evans added 2 new photos - with Victor Eskenasy and 20 others. July 5 ·. A 1940 Horszowski recital recorded at the Vatican on a machine invented by the Germans! In today's La Stampa. Newly restored and brought to light by Arbiter and myself. And of course it is fascinating to hear Debussy, well admired as a pianist, play four songs with Mary Garden. Our friend Hisao Natsume has just brought out a cd of her 78rpm recordings on his wonderful Sakuraphon label (sakuraphon. MORNING IRSAY Fridays 10-noonish on WBAI-FM 9.

From 1940 Horszowski lived in the United States, first in New York City and later in Philadelphia. He became an American citizen in 1948. Horszowski performed with the NBC Symphony Orchestra under Toscanini, with whom he was friends, in 1943 and 1953. During the 1954–1955 season, he gave a memorable cycle of Beethoven's entire solo piano works in New York. Horszowski was widely recorded and can be heard on the HMV, Columbia, RCA, Vanguard, Nonesuch, and other labels. His final recordings for Nonesuch were made when he was in his mid to late nineties. He also taught at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where his pupils included Robert Dennison, Julius Eastman, Richard Goode, Dina Koston, Anton Kuerti, Murray Perahia, Peter Serkin, Steven De Groote, Kathryn Selby, Cecile Licad, and Leslie Spotz.

Horszowski made his debut as a child prodigy, playing a Beethoven concerto in Warsaw in 1901, and continued giving concerts and making recordings until last year. He was not so famous as Arthur Rubinstein, Vladimir Horowitz or other elder statesmen of the keyboard in the late 20th century. But he always had a strong cult following, and in recent years his reputation and audience blossomed anew as a younger generation discovered him through a recent series of recordings that reveal his special mastery of the works of Chopin, Mozart, Schubert, Debussy and Bach  . An obituary yesterday about the pianist Mieczyslaw Horszowski referred to the cellist Janos Starker incorrectly. Mr. Starker is alive and still performing; he presented the premiere of Chou Wen-Chung's Cello Concerto in January at Carnegie Hall.
