Vladimir Horowitz: Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23

Vladimir Horowitz performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 [see here, here & here]. It is a clip from a video that gives us a view of both Vladimir Horowitz the pianist and the man. It includes his interactions with his wife, Wanda Toscanini. In it, Vladimir Horowitz performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488, with the Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala di Milano (La Scala Theater Orchestra), Carlo Maria Giulini, conducting. The video, "Horowiz Plays Mozart" (1987), is a Peter Gelb production.
