Deutsche Grammophon releases, for the very first time, a recording that Vladimir Horowitz made for Chicago radio station WFMT in 1986. Horowitz was unquestionably one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. He elevated the art of piano playing to new levels as Liszt had done some 100 years before him. Popular in Chicago – between 1928 and 1986 Horowitz played there thirty seven times, having to repeat most of his performances in order to reach as many of his admirers as possible. By 1986 he'd come up with perhaps a better plan: a concert that would be broadcast as a gift to the city of Chicago. It was broadcast locally over Chicago's premiere classical radio station WFMT. It was broadcast only once more and has not been heard since that time, lying in WFMT's vaults until producer Jon M. Samuels discovered its existence in October 2013.
