The pianist Arthur Rubinstein had one of the longest concert playing careers of the 20th century. He loved to play for people, and they loved to hear him. In the multitude of records he made, the music of his fellow Pole Chopin stood out. We have samples of Rubinstein's playing of the many piano forms that Chopin worked on, and on Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, you will hear some of the great Chopin recordings made by Rubinstein.
