    About the Jew Score
    Suggestion Box
    Vladimir Horowitz

    Jew Score:



    October 1, 1903 – November 5, 1989

    "There are three kinds of pianists: Jewish pianists, homosexual pianists, and bad pianists." — Vladimir Horowitz

    Let's test that maxim!

    Horowitz himself was Jewish, of course. No doubt about that. And he was very likely homosexual... there is enough evidence out there to suggest it, but we will leave that for our non-existent colleagues at GayOrNotGay.com. Still, he checks the Jewish box, so no need to explore further.

    Feel free to play along, but here are some famous pianists:

  • Arthur Rubinsein: Jewish
  • Emil Gilels: Jewish
  • Benjamin Britten: Gay
  • Billy Joel: Jewish
  • Michael Feinstein: Jewish
  • Liberace: Gay
  • Martha Argerich: Jewish
  • Myra Hess: Jewish
  • Van Cliburn: Gay
  • Vladimir Ashkenazy: Jewish
  • Marvin Hamlisch: Jewish
  • Elton John: Gay
  • Artur Schnabel: Jewish
  • Leonard Bernstein: Jewish and gay

    So, if you play the piano, and you're not Jewish, and you're not gay...

    Good luck?

  • Verdict: Jew.
