Arthur Rubinstein is one of the piano greats. Here is a very high quality video of him performing the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 with the London Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Andre Previn in 1975. He is 88 years old in this clip and plays beautifully! It is hard for me to process that this performance is from the year I was born and yet Rubinstein was born in 1887!
He retired from performing only one year later although he lived until the age of 95. His career is filled with momentous accomplishments. He was best known as a recitalist and concerto soloist, but he also performed a lot of chamber music with the likes of Jascha Heifetz and Pablo Casals.
You will hear why he is considered one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century.
