Vladimir Horowitz is widely considered to be one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. Known for his command of the great Romantic piano concerti, Horowitz played with nearly every major international orchestra and influenced generations of pianists after him. The Steinway & Sons Model D Horowitz Piano display provides an exceptional and rare opportunity for the public to engage with the Steinway CD 503, the well-known piano that accompanied Horowitz (1903-1989) on tour.
