This Vladimir Horowitz Live at Carnegie Hall box set is the first ever collection of live performances of the legendary pianist's recordings from Carnegie Hall between 1943 and 1978.

The first section consists of entire recitals, including Brahms' Rhapsody in E-flat major, Op. 119, No. 4 and Debussy's The Little Shepherd. The recitals also feature many legendary performances including the 1943 historic concert with Toscanini, the 1953 recital celebrating the 25th anniversary of his American recording debut, and the 1976 "Concert of the Century" celebrating Carnegie Hall’s 85th anniversary. The second section of the box set tells the story of Horowitz's "Private Collection" of Carnegie Hall recitals starting in 1945.

A bonus DVD Live at Carnegie Hall features the release of the TV concert "Horowitz on Television" which aired on CBS in 1968.
