Description

Arthur Rubinstein (1887–1982) was one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. He made his debuts in the USA in 1906 and London in 1912. He was a superb performer of Chopin and his 1960s recordings of nearly all Chopin’s solo piano music have been considered essential to any record collection since their release. His honours included the Gold Medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society of London, the US Medal of Freedom (1976), and membership of the French Legion of Honour. This is a rare live recording of Rubinstein made by the BBC in 1963 which has only recently been discovered in the National Sound Archives. It has never been issued before in any format.
