Vladimir Horowitz's standard-setting virtuosity and boundless imagination resonate throughout a remarkable collection of films gathered together for the first time on DVD. It includes the first London and Vienna recitals Horowitz gave in decades, along with his celebrated historic return to Moscow after more than sixty years' absence. The last Romantic features Horowitz in his New York home, playing and speaking about Liszt, Chopin, Schumann, Scriabin and Rachmaninoff--all composers with whom he had a lifelong affinity. By contrast, a behind-the-scenes documentary of Horowitz's only Mozart concerto recording conveys the veteran pianist's palpable joy and freshness of approach in rediscovering this composer late in life. Vladimir Horowitz--a reminiscence interweaves rare footage from concerts, interviews and private archives into a loving, insightful portrait narrated on screen by the pianist's widow, Wanda Toscanini Horowitz--Container
