Vidi Turbam Magnam
Ruth Laredo, my favorite Scriabin player.
Horszowski was 94 years old when he made that recording.
Ingrid Fliter, presently owns Chopin.
Maria Joao Pires, another great Chopin player.
And finally Horowitz. I heard him play once when I was in college. He did the "Funeral March" sonata by Chopin, some of his signature Rachmaninov, some Clementi, and several encores. That was probably the single greatest concert I have ever been to, out of hundreds and hundreds.
