Kreisleriana - OOPS!

An analysis of the differences between Vladimir Horowitz's 1969 recording of Schumann's Kreisleriana on the original Columbia Masterworks LP, and the 1993 Sony Classical reissue. Alternate takes were used in several sections.

The first few seconds of the video was clipped off.

Hank, thank you so much for this magisterial detective-work. I can also deeply relate to your "walk back from the shop in the rain" even if Bruckner featured in my particular experience.

Thankfully - and against all odds - I still have the "Orange" CD. Best wishes, Bernard.
