MOBILE, Ala. – University of Mobile piano students will perform a concert April 25 on the nine-foot concert grand piano that accompanied classical titan Vladimir Horowitz on tour.

The concert begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Steinway Gallery, 11247 US-31, Spanish Fort, Alabama, 36527. Admission is free.

Horowitz, a Steinway Artist Immortal, is widely considered one of the greatest pianists of the 20thcentury. His colorful personality and astounding performances enthralled audiences for decades.

Steinway & Sons presented Horowitz and his wife with a Steinway Model D, Serial #279503 as a wedding gift. Horowitz demanded that the 503 be his exclusive touring instrument during the last years of his life, including his triumphant return to the former Soviet Union for performances in Moscow and Leningrad.
