Named in honor of Vladimir Horowitz, whose archive resides at Yale, the Horowitz Piano Series has brought many of the world’s great keyboard artists to Yale.
In addition to the distinguished pianists of the Yale faculty, guests artists have included Yefim Bronfman, Garrick Ohlsson, and Misha Dichter, along with pianists less well known in the United States such as Pierre Réach, Mikhaïl Rudy, Severin von Eckardstein, and Alexei Lubimov. The series is directed by Boris Berman.
