Sonata for keyboard in D major, K. Horowitz played the Schubert at several recording sessions in March of , about one month before his Moscow concert. So, his mind may have been elsewhere during these sessions. On the positive side, there is a welcome sense of relaxation, he plays the often neglected first movement repeat, and he gets the tempos right.
It's nice to hear the second movement, marked Andante sostenuto, played at the intended tempo - instead of Adagio or even Largo. But there are too many negatives here: Horowitz gussies up the piano writing adding fifths in the left hand and lowering bass notes , breaks apart phrases, and generally disrupts the flow of the music to the extent that what is left is a parody of Schubert's most sublime piano sonata.
He's also not quite up to snuff technically in the last movement. The pianist himself recognized the problems with this performance - calling it "fussy" - and refused to grant Deutsche Grammophon permission to release it.
Other pieces recorded during those sessions, Schubert's Moment Musical No. In , Wanda Toscanini Horowitz overrode her late husband's rejection and allowed the Sonata to be released.
