The title should be enough information, I'm curious. He seems quite tall.


Listing heights of other pianists would be cool too.


My gods are: Cortot, Horowitz, and Sofronitsky,

Started piano during COVID, hopefully I can play Rachmaninoff, Rubinstein, and Scriabin compositions one day...

Y'know the expression, "google is your friend"....

So, simple matter -- let's see......

A site called Wikilogy seems to have the answer.
Here's a copy/paste:

Height: None

So I guess there's our answer! grin

BTW, the first time I went to see Horowitz, I had no idea about his size, or in fact anything about what he looked like.

I remember how surprised I was at what a little guy he was.
