  少有鋼琴家能夠如霍洛維茲(Vladimir Horowitz, 1904-1989)一樣快速地竄起,而且完全地被認可;十六歲時他便可以公開演奏十一套節目,而且曲目完全不重複。二十一歲便在聖彼得堡聲名大噪,而在西方世界的演出也是賣座鼎盛,並因此獲邀為Welte Mignon公司錄音。1928年他巡迴美國演出,開始正式的演奏生涯。六零年代的霍洛維茲,音樂趨於成熟,開始展現真正大師級演奏家的風範。年輕時對技巧的追求,此時則轉移到音樂內涵的經營,而對於曲目的選擇,也更加謹慎。
  這一套50張CD的專輯,收錄1966-1983年間,霍洛維茲在14座不同的音樂廳,舉辦的25場獨奏會中,所演奏的十三套節目。這些未曾出版過的現場演奏錄音,帶領樂迷從他的故鄉來到紐約最知名的音樂廳,從美國康乃狄克州的第二大城紐哈芬市(New Haven)到芝加哥、華盛頓特區、費城、波士頓,以及之外的更多地方。其中記錄了許多重要的歷史時刻,包括了1978年他受卡特總統邀請至白宮演奏,以及1982年為了英國皇家歌劇院而特別舉辦的音樂會。
  專輯內容包含學者Bernie Horowitz所撰寫的解說、長期擔任賀洛維茲專輯製作人Thomas Frost之訪談,以及完整的錄音資料。錄音中包括了從不曾出現在賀洛維茲已發行專輯中的曲目,如:舒曼《狂歡節》,作品 9、蕭邦《練習曲》,作品25-10、史克里亞賓為左手而寫的《前奏曲》,作品9-1。
  霍洛維茲去世時被美國雷根總統尊以「美國國寶」之名,可見美國人對於霍洛維茲是多麼引以為傲!這些數量龐大的錄音除了少數曲目曾被單獨挑選出來出版,絕大部分都被原封不動安全地保存超過三十年,直到這套專輯的發行,樂迷才得以回顧其精彩的演奏生涯。專輯完整而真實地呈現霍洛維茲的現場之演出功力以及其藝術之境界,而愛樂者只要以一張音樂會的票價,便能回到過去,享受十數場最高水準的音樂演奏,絕對物超所值!
