Arthur Rubinstein requires no introduction – he was one of the greatest and most distinguished pianists of the 20th century with a large discography. These rare performances have an historical importance in that after 1914, Rubinstein never played in Germany again and therefore to have him with a German orchestra (KRSO) in Zurich in 1966 was a very rare event. Rubinstein caught live in 1966 rather than in the studio brings a much greater spontaneity in the Brahms, which is beautifully and excitingly performed. These performances have never been issued before.
