I am happy that the Steinway has been my faithful and inseparable friend since the inception of my concert career.
Vladimir Horowitz (10/1/1903 – 11/5/1989) is widely considered to be the greatest pianist of the 20th century, and he was a Steinway Artist for over sixty years. Mr. Horowitz’s personal Steinway is on a tour of the United States, and will be in the Twin Cities for a limited time only!
This stunning piano – a Steinway Model D (CD503) nine-foot ebony concert grand – is the piano that Horowitz took to Russia for his triumphant return concert series in 1986, at the age of 83. That program, covered by CBS, influenced many great pianists of our age. Horowitz also used this Steinway on several tracks on his last album, Horowitz, the Last Recordings.
You can also enjoy reproductions of several Horowitz performances captured on the amazing Steinway Spirio. Photographs of you at the Horowitz Steinway piano will be available courtesy of Schmitt Music. Plus, you’ll get a special commemorative certificate!
Please contact a Schmitt Music Piano Specialist to schedule your time with the Horowitz Steinway in Brooklyn Center or in Edina.
Thank you for bringing this treasure to the TC and allowing us to play it is astounding!
It is our pleasure! Please feel free to tag us in any pics or video you may have to share… we’d love to see 🙂
Did Vladimir Horowitz ever play after a formal concert at the home of the late Grande Dame Berniece Dalrymple’s at 1700 Mt. Curve Avenue, Minneapolis?
Very interesting inquiry, Kurt! Unfortunately, our Schmitt Music Piano Specialists and management team do not have the answer.
