The Friday OT: Vladimir Horowitz plays Schubert's Impromptu in G flat major n°3

From 1987 in Vienna.

It's been on my mind since last Sunday morning, when a radio show played an hour block of Schubert piano pieces. This version is the best I've found since then and this vid is worth watching as well as listening to, because of Horowitz's face and expressions as the piece progresses. The master at work, lost inside the music. Quite beautiful.
