Vladimir Horowitz

"Your mind must control, but you must have heart . . . . Give your feeling free."
"I must tell you I take terrible risks. Because my playing is very clear, when I make a mistake you hear it. If you want me to play only the notes without any specific dynamics, I will never make one mistake. Never be afraid to dare."

-Vladimir Horowitz 

Horowitz, born in Kiev, Ukraine (1903), is known for his "unequaled" speed, accuracy, dynamic range, and power.  He is famous for playing many pieces by Chopin and Scriabin as well as Scarlatti.
