Remembering Horowitz: 125 Pianists Recall a Legend David Dubal Schirmer Book 1/9/2014

This book has been in my list to read for several years and finally I had a chance to read during this past Christmas break! He is HOROWITZ!! Of course all of us grew up listening Horowitz, and explored his special sound. I was curious to hear the voices from many first class pianists about Horowitz, and they satisfied me in many aspects of his life. Some studied with Horowitz, and have seen his private life closely. Some heard him only from his concerts, and got great impression.  Most of them are positive, but some are negative toward him. There are so many anecdotes we enjoy in this book! My story with Horowitz is that I had a chance to play on his famous piano when it was circulating after he passed away. I still remember I was nervous and excited to touch and feel his special piano, and tried to hear his sound. He will live in his legacy forever.
