1999 release. Pianist Mieczyslaw Horszowski (1892-1993) was taught by a pupil of Beethoven's assistant Czerny; he is but three steps from the composer himself and his own insight guides him to a high interpretive level. Arbiter traced these performances from archives in Parma, Italy and Philadelphia, presenting them here in their first publication. Horszowski played the entire solo Beethoven piano works as a cycle and kept many sonatas in his repertoire, but few were recorded. Arbiter continues to recover and refurbish his Beethoven legacy.
