Happy Birthday, Vlad

Today, we mark the 119th birthday of Vladimir Horowitz, the Russian-born pianist who was born on October 1, 1903 (Kiev) and who died on November 5, 1989, (NYC).

Where does one start to pick “The” piece that defines his stellar career?

Well, I selected Chopin’s Polonaise in A Flat Major op 53.

Enjoy.
