The Polish pianist Mieczylsaw Horszowski (1892 - 1993) has been a consistent feature on BBC Legends, with outstanding reviews for his Aldeburgh Festival and Wigmore Hall recitals (BBCL41222, BBCL41712, BBCL42032).

The CD contains two recitals drawn from the 1984 and 1987 Aldeburgh Festivals. Here, his programme is even more wide-ranging than his previous recitals on BBC Legends, including tributes to his friends Casals and Villa Lobos, as well as music by Chopin, Bach (arr. Liszt), Mozart and Mendelssohn, all very much associated with Horszowski.

Bryce Morrison, the critic and booklet writer for this compilation, makes the following observations: "Chopin's Third Sonata is a startling choice for so venerable a pianist, yet even here Horszowski's nobility shines through...the Bach-Liszt is touched with grandeur (try the final fugue) and if the flesh is occasionally weak in the Mozart Sonata, the spirit is so much more than willing...the two Chopin Mazurkas are alternately reflective and rumbustious. Lastly, Mendelssohn's 'Bee's Wedding' Song Without Words is a reminder that if the music profession can at times seen punitive, music itself is forever life-enhancing and an ultimate mirror of human feeling and experience...he was, to quote yet another critic and admirer, 'somewhat of a miracle'".

Horszowski spent much of his time in the US playing with Casals and Szigeti and was hugely admired by Toscanini and Artur Rubinstein, a life-long friend who wrote to him saying 'I gather you will be in the audience at my concert tomorrow and so I am practising with particular care and attention'.

Reviews: "If I was to single out only one disc from BBC Legends' buried treasure, it would surely be this recital by Mieczyslaw Horszowski (BBCL42032)...The Mozart B flat Sonata's finale is unforgettably perky and buoyant and it is no exaggeration to say that every bar of this miraculous work seems illuminated by some indefinable but unmistakable light from within...this disc is beyond price and should be heard by all lovers of musical greatness." Bryce Morrison, Gramophone Magazine, May 2007.
