Horowitz plays Liszt


Horowitz plays Liszt Consolation #3 (D flat) so comfortably. His fingers are always in contact with the keys. He uses no extra movements of the arm, body, or hands.  (And I love how he puts his left hand on his hip at the end.)

From an interview with Horowitz in Etude Magazine (March 1932) via Kevin Purrone:

“The finger must have a consciousness of the movement which makes the singing melody.”
