Does anyone know which score Horowitz is playing? I have the Dover score, which seems to differ on some points from this one. For instance: in the middle, calm part of the etude, in my socre, the entire melody in the right hand consists of only octaves. But Horowitz is also playing the 7th in the chord (an extra 'a' in the right hand), along with octaves-melody (see movie at 50-52 sec.) Anyone know which score this is???.. For clarity: in the fragment at 50-52 sec., the Dover score says: (indicating a chord between two brackets)
Horowitz is playing:
Jos van Riswick
Without any criticism about your interesting discovery, and only to explain my thought.
There are tons of these situations in many Horowitz recordings, and IMHO they are the less important things to evaluate his art. The music begin under the fingers of the player, while in the
score there are only billions of silent hypothesis.
All the best,
