The great pianist as seen through the pages of Gramophone

This week on the Gramophone website we are exploring the life and legacy of Arthur Rubinstein, who was born 130 years ago, on January 28, 1887.

We've gathered classic articles from the Gramophone archive, including Alan Byth's interview with the pianist from 1968, a guide to the top 10 Rubinstein recordings and Bryce Morrison's personal reflections on one of the great musicians of the 20th century: 'Arthur Rubinstein – wine, women and the piano'. Rubinstein Week starts here:
