Piano – Artur Rubinstein. Chopin – Rubinstein - Artur Rubinstein - The Pianist Of Our Century ‎(LP, Gat). RCA Victor, RCA Victor Red Seal.

Rubinstein's playing is silky smooth throughout both discs of nocturnes here. His interpretations are excellent. I highly recommend this album. Format: Audio CDVerified Purchase. I have never owned an album by Rubinstein and this one is a jewel. His interpretations of Chopin are just lovely.

Arthur Rubinstein (piano). Release Date: 9th Sep 2016. Catalogue No: 600341. 10 CD box set featuring eight original albums and top-class bonus tracks from the best-known pianist of the 20th century, Arthur Rubinstein, performing works by Chopin at the height of his mastery. The recordings collected together for these 10 CDs assured Rubinstein his place in the "Hall of Fame" of the greatest virtuosi of our time. From his debut as thirteen-year-old in Berlin until his last appearance in 1976 in London he had given several thousand concerts and made more than 700 recordings.

Artur Rubinstein will remain forever in Poles' memories also for his great gesture at the San Francisco Opera in 1945 at the inauguration of the United Nations. Seeing no Polish flag among those representing the nations gathered there after the end of World War II, the Maestro changed the programme of his recital. He started by saying a few words of displeasure at the absence of the Polish flag, and then announced he would begin by playing the national anthem of his country, and played the Polish anthem - DABROWSKI'S MAZURKA

Yet this image is belied by Rubinstein's actual playing, which was quite vigorous, urgent, and even explosive, well into his eighties. This twofer from RCA Red Seal presents some of Rubinstein's best-loved recordings from 1946 to 1972, featuring the two piano concertos on the first disc, and offering a sampling of the most popular solo piano works on the second CD, such as the Polonaise in A flat major, "Héroique," the Fantaisie-Impromptu in C sharp minor, the Nocturne in E flat. The wide range of Rubinstein's expression can be judged best from these short works, because the selection covers music of quiet intimacy, heroic bravado, and everything in between.
