This nine disc set contains the bulk of Rubinstein's stereo recordings of Brahms although it's not complete, to avoid repertoire duplication.
The pieces No. 5 in C major: Vivo - Arthur Rubinstein - Arthur Rubinstein plays Chopin (Box Set) within three categories: concertos, solo works, and chamber music. Concertos: Concerto in D minor, Op. It was originally released only in mono, and didn't get a stereo release until It says something for the original producer - the legendary John Pfeiffer - that the sound still holds up very well.
Fritz Reiner draws sparks from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, with some thrilling woodwind playing in the first movement. This is the Baby Grand - Ray Charles - Playlist: The Very Best of Ray Charles of the dragged out, pre-maturely aged approach that has more recently No. 5 in C major: Vivo - Arthur Rubinstein - Arthur Rubinstein plays Chopin (Box Set) concert audiences' endurance.
I must point out, however, that Rubinstein's somewhat less well known recording with Leinsdorf and the Boston Symphony it has only been issued on CD once coheres a bit better - even if it's a bit less fiery. As for the version with Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic: Rubinstein was not in command, and Sony is wise not to give it another CD issue.
Concerto in B-flat major, Op. Josef Krips and RCA's pick-up orchestra are on hand here. This performance is a bit overly impetuous, with a more vivace approach than this epic, grandeur filled concerto warrants. There's also a bit of technical bluffing, with some arpeggios unevenly balanced. That said, this is the best of Rubinstein's four official recordings of the Second Concerto.
The first, with Barbirolli, is very exciting but sloppy; the last, with Ormandy is bogged down. Solo works: The F minor Sonata, taped inwas a favorite of Rubinstein's. The first and third movements are particularly arresting here, where his impulsive way with the piece best suits the music. In the second and fourth movements, however, the sense of mystery generated by, say, Perahia, is missing.
Nevertheless, this is exciting playing, and Rubinstein is in excellent form in the finale - where too many pianists lose steam as does the piece itself, frankly.
The Romance and Op. Rubinstein had, by then, developed a drier, less sentimental approach, emphasized by close-up recording. There are times when the playing is somewhat shorn of contrast - one misses the extremes of tension and repose. At this point, the elder statesman of pianists was more interested in making a clear structural statement than in shade and color.
It's unfortunate that Sony did not include the solo recital originally No. 5 in C major: Vivo - Arthur Rubinstein - Arthur Rubinstein plays Chopin (Box Set) LM on this set - probably because it was mono. The playing was excellent, and it included a few pieces like the Rhapsody in E-flat that Rubinstein never remade in stereo.
