Reviews For Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos. 8, 14, 21 & 23 (Expanded Edition) By Artist Vladimir Horowitz

  • i'm no expert, or maybe i am

    about 5 years ago I started dating a woman with taste, who takes me to Tanglewood every summer for shed seats and Carnegie Hall for 2-3 subscriptions a year, almost entirely piano soloists and violin soloists. After hearing many of the greats of today perform these classic Beethoven Piano Sonatas, I decided to research who was the "best" given tech, style and ability. It seemed that all the purists were in agreement, Vladimir Horowitz's 1960's era performances are considered some of the most amazing recorded with modern sound equipment. After hearing so many of these Sonatas live, I have to agree. Playing this with your home system LOUD is a truly enlightening experience. This is one of the best purchases ever. Complaints about the short 8th Sonata are directly related to tech limitations of the day and best addressed in Boydstra's review. Cheers. Peace.
  • The fault is not with iTunes

    Don't blame iTunes. The original album doesn't include the third movement of the Pathétique sonata (no. 8 in minor) either. Only the four sonatas listed on the album cover are included in full. The producers must have had extra space on the album to fill (a problem eliminated by CDs and, of course, mp3 formats) and figured 2/3 of a sonata played by Horowitz is better than none. And they were right. Horowitz's rendition of the first 2 movements is elegant, moving ("pathétique"), and beautiful—worth having even in its wounded state. I'd love to hear the full version of this particular performance, but I haven't yet found it anywhere else.
  • Itunes failure

    This low rating has nothing to do with the actual performance. They have left of the third movement of the 8th sonata, thus revealing Itunes inattention to detail yet again. Do not buy this CD unless you know absolutely nothing about Music--in which case you will not mind the glaring omission.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
