"The florid gusto of Rubinstein's playing may not suit modern tastes, but he is clearly engaged with his material, rendering such considerations meaningless; and at his best, he is breathtaking."
the Independent

"Rubinstein in Chopin is a magician in matters of colour," The Penguin Guide raves, adding, "Chiseled perfection, suggesting the metaphor of finely cut and polished diamonds … Master pianist that he was, Rubinstein seems actually to be rethinking and re-creating each piece … at the very moment of performance."
