About Mieczyslaw Horszowski

  • Mieczyslaw Horszowski—friend of Fauré, collaborator of Casals, teacher of Murray Perahia and Andras Schiff—began performing before the public at the age of 10. A child prodigy, he played Bach at the age of 3 and later studied with Leschetizky. He moved from his native Poland to Milan in 1922, and remained there until 1942, when he became a faculty member at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music, where his last record for Nonesuch was recorded.

    Well-known for his chamber music performances with, among others, Josef Szigeti, the Budapest Quartet, and Pablo Casals, Horszowski’s solo work was first widely celebrated only in the last decade of his life. His recital schedule included concerts in the world’s most prestigious halls, with a 1990 Carnegie Hall performance that ranked as “the concert of the season,” according to the city’s reviewers.

    Horszowski continued to perform until his death in 1993.
