Vladimir Horowitz's standard-setting virtuosity and boundless imagination resonate throughout a remarkable collection of films gathered together for the first time on DVD.

The last Romantic features Horowitz in his New York home, playing and speaking about Liszt, Chopin, Schumann, Scriabin and Rachmaninoff--all composers with whom he had a lifelong affinity. By contrast, a behind-the-scenes documentary of Horowitz's only Mozart concerto recording conveys the veteran pianist's palpable joy and freshness of approach in rediscovering this composer late in life.
