VLADIMIR HOROWITZ  (1903-1989)  Vladimir Horowitz performed the canon of classical piano, but is remembered for his strength and power which is conveyed on his recordings.  In 1928 he left his homeland Russia, vowing to return. But first he would conquer New York with the Tchaikovsky Concerto #1.  His debut was also the American debut of conductor Sir Thomas Beecham.  Beecham had no intent of playing second to an upstart and confused the tempo. Horowitz surged ahead, finishing before the orchestra, prompting the NEW YORK TIMES to write "Mr. Horowitz has amazing technique, amazing strength.... a whirlwind of virtuoso interpretation."  Such performing took its toll and Horowitz went into a self-imposed retirement from 1953-1965, returning to triumph at Carnegie Hall on May 9, 1965. And in 1986 he returned to Moscow for his final triumph: "I had to go back to Russia before I died.  It brings an Aristotelian unity to my life."
