Vitlaus von Horn was the first (and so far the only) pianist to perform the complete piano solo works of Sergey Prokofiev in concert. Having reached the pinnacle of his career and unable to top this achievement, he took a quarter-century-long sabbatical from piano, interrupted only by world première recordings of the complete works for piano and orchestra by Charles-Valentin Alkan on Naxos [8.553702] and of JW Hässler’s monumental cycle 360 Preludes in All Keys. Von Horn’s musical pedigree goes back to Beethoven himself, through Medtner, Leszetycki and Czerny.
