    Horowitz’s technique was indeed formidable but not infallible, as may be heard from his unedited live concerts. They are full of wrong notes. But what his technique allowed him to do was to take huge risks impossible for other pianists.

    Regarding wrong notes he said, “I must tell you I take terrible risks. Because my playing is very clear, when I make a mistake you hear it. If you want me to play only the notes without any specific dynamics, I will never make one mistake. Never be afraid to dare.”
