 Arthur Rubinstein Soloist


 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.

"... The sound throughout the recording is fine given its vintage ... what is most remarkable about Rubinstein for me is his naturalness - there seems to be not even a strand of the eccentric in his playing. His Chopin will always remain a favorit because of its elegance, its straightforwardness, and its rejection of the picture of the composer as a frail and meek individual. His Chopin is timeless. His Ravel too is fascinating. In his hands to music retains it mondern aura. This is one disc that you’ll be sure to want in your collection; I’m all too happy to make it part of mine."

Scott Noriega - Fanfare - July/August 2013


                    Performance *****       Recording **

"... this recital reveals the multifaceted artistry of Arthur Rubinstein at its most heart-warming ...  a concert to treasure, full of Rubenstein’s unquenchable spirit."

Jessica Duchen - BBC Music magazine - June 2013


Arthur Rubinstein (1887-1982) always figures in the top ten great pianists. Listening to these performances it isn’t difficult to hear why. There is a command of style and technique, a profound sense of rightness, and an expressive voice given to only a few. Rubinstein was not particularly associated with Ravel, or the piano sonatas of Beethoven, but had recorded both these works for RCA in January 1963 (LSC 2751 and LSC 2812)... These renditions are magnificent. Rubinstein makes the first subject of the Beethoven dance ... Rubinstein’s Chopin is the stuff of legend...Rubinstein gives another masterclass in playing Chopin – some of the runs and arpeggios are so beautifully voiced that it is difficult not to purr with contentment."
