The Incredible Rubinstein!

April 10, 2014 at 7:14 pm (Cinema, Kiran David)

Was fortunate to see the 1975 film recording of the then 90 year old Arthur Rubinstein  playing on three concertos  – one each by  Greig, Chopin and Saint – Saens. He plays by memory as he could not read at that time. He had lost his central vision by then and could only see stuff that was peripheral. Unbelievable performance!
