The big Vladimir

I found this on YouTube and wanted to share it with you : In 1986, Vladimir Horowitz, one of the biggest pianists of the 20th century, returns to Moscow for a concert, after 61 years of exile. He is an old man, just 2 years before his death. He plays Schumann's Traumerei, as an encore. All his life in 2 minutes of divine music. The audience, all the audience, is crying.
