The devil plays the piano too — not only the violin …

a dear friend of mine suggested the below links to a long interview with Horowitz made in 1985 by one of Berlusconi's TVs (!)

the interesting parts are those where VH plays in a hotel room excerpts from unpublished works like Paderewski's Minuetto, something from Aida, the Liszt-Rigoletto quartet and many others

the technique is a disaster but some clips are quite enjoyable

About a week ago the entire 1963 Raymond Lewenthal WBAI broadcast on Alkan was posted, in 19 parts. The first part is here:

This is a reminder of how Lewenthal is utterly without peer in today's piano world.

Thanks for the notice about the Lewenthal radio (now youtube) program on Alkan. I started listening and was again reminded that Lewenthal had been working on a book about Alkan (reminded by virtue of the fact that L continually refers to it). Does anyone know what became of the book? I don't believe it has ever been published, but I wonder if anyone has done any work on it. I suspect it would make for an interesting read!

I have extracted the audio from these and it may be downloaded from here http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?y0kujwmnjo2. It is about 104 mByte, fairly large.

I wonder whether anyone could help me with a video of Prokofiev in his dacha that was posted a while ago. I'm interested to know whether I remembered correctly that he made an analogy between chess and composition.
