I remember that.

He also had Andres Segovia at the White House on PBS.

Good musical taste, that President.

I had seen a small portion of this before, but thanks for posting the whole performance. Mesmerizing.

ALways amazing to listen to Horowitz.. live he was electricity personified... before even playing a single note the crowd was in a frenzy.. rock star.

I thought this was going to be about the chess player, Horowitz, playing Carter on camera. Sigh.
