This is a wonderful collection of documents (mostly correspondence and diaries) pertaining to the biography of this uniquely gifted pianist.
One can read the book as a biography or as a chronicle of history. One learns a lot of the person whose playing touched so many generations. One learns also about a slightly different era, in which artists loved to spend time together and attended each other's concerts all the time...

I witnessed Horszowski's last concert in Lucerne and still hear Chopin's Bolero in my ears.
