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.

“This is a truly beautiful performance of the B flat major concerto.”
 
MusicWeb-International.com - June 2011
 

 “Much to revere, especially the andante.”

 
La Scena Musicale - May 2011

     EDITORS CHOICE
“The legendary charisma and indelible individuality of Arthur Rubenstein. The transfers are excellent and so one can hardly be sufficiently grateful for the issue of such material and, above all, human treasure.”
 
Gramophone magazine - June 2011

“The sound (again mono) is excellent, warmer and with greater dynamic range than in the concerto, and the pitch is almost perfect... here we have a superbly engineered example of Rubinstein’s art.”
 
TheClassicalSource.com - April 2011
 

“Another ICA Classics remastering to recommend is this fascinating collection of live recordings by Rubinstein in the last decade of his career. The orchestral sound is dated and cramped in Brahms’s second concerto but Rubinstein’s playing is wonderfully fresh, modern and inspired, wrong notes and all. That mercurial, unmannerly generosity extends to his readings of Chopin’s Nocturne in D flat major (recorded in Nijmegen in 1963) and to Falla’s exhilarating "Ritual Fire Dance". Excellent liner notes remind us that Rubinstein was playing Debussy, Ravel, Albeniz and Szymanoski when they were contemporary composers; indeed, when he discovered the "Fire Dance" in 1916, Falla still had 30 years to live.”
