Arthur Rubinstein

1887- 1982

Pianist

The splendid piano virtuoso Arthur Rubinstein enjoyed tremendous popularity from the time of his debut at the age of 12. Though born in Poland, Rubinstein lived for much of the time in Paris and Berlin when not touring the world.

Rubinstein was one of the first pianists to use the then-new medium of electronic recording, committing nearly his entire repertoire to vinyl. His command of the musical literature was vast, and included Chopin, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert and Schumann.

Rubenstein continued to actively perform until age 90.
