Vladimir Horowitz's extraordinary 1986 concert in Moscow was the most widely reported musical recital of the century.

Horowitz In Moscow not only captures the drama and excitement of Horowitz's superb performance, it also includes the highlights of his return to his native land -- his first visit to the Soviet Union since he left his homeland for the west at the age of twenty.Mr. Horowitz's return was a deeply emotional experience for the eighty-one year old pianist as well as for his devoted fans who overflowed the concert hall to witness this unforgettable concert.

The demanding program of Scarlatti, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Schubert, Liszt and Chopin was lovingly chosen by Mr. Horowitz as much for its personal significance (he describes Rachmaninoff as his closet friend in the music world) as for the historic significance of the composers whose work he performed.Mr. Horowitz set an informal tone as he walked on stage, waving affectionately to his audience.Once at the piano, he played with an unmatched mastery of technique, range and interpretative power.Intimate close-ups of Mr. Horowitz's agile hands are interspersed with cutaway shots to the faces in the audience, their expressions intent, some openly weeping.
