RUBINSTEIN, ARTUR (1899-1982).

This distinguished pianist was born in Lodz, the seventh child of a textile manufacturer. He began to play the piano at the age of three and made his debut in a Mozart concert at the age of seven. The promising child prodigy developed into a brilliant interpreter of classical and modern music. Rubinstein achieved great success on the European concert stage, coming to the U.S. for the first time in 1906. The recognition accorded him all over the world included many awards. He was elected to the French Legion of Honor and to the Brazil Academy of Music. His love of music and his prodigious energy often led him to give more than 100 concerts a year.
