Horowitz playing the Rach 3, at age 75

Not 100% note-accurate, but who cares when he plays so close to the edge and in such electrifying fashion. Watch the old maestro punch the air with his fists at 41:42!

When Horowitz and Arrau passed on it was also the passing of an era. Amazingly both of them were born in the same year (1903) and died within two years of each other (Horowitz in 1989, Arrau in 1991).
