Polish-American pianist Arthur Rubinstein was born on this day in 1887 – 132 years ago.

A student of Karl Heinrich Barth, Maestro Rubinstein is remembered as one of the pre-eminent pianists of the 20th Century.

Although best known as a recitalist and concerto soloist, he was also considered an outstanding chamber musician – partnering with such luminaries as Henryk Szeryng, Jascha Heifetz, Pablo Casals, Gregor Piatigorsky and the Guarneri String Quartet.
