Mozart's Attic Sunday April 23rd: Masters of the Ivories

Vladimir Samoylovich Horowitz

Rubinstein and Horowitz, Rachmaninoff and Schnabel, Hofmann and Horszowski — all hallowed names in the panoply of piano virtuosi of the last century.

This week we’ll look at some of the legendary masters of the ivories. And while we’re at it, we’ll hear some of the shorter jewels of the piano repertoire.

Sunday at 6:00 p.m. on WFIT 89.5 FM, streaming at WFIT.org, or ask your smart speaker to play WFIT.

He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
