Arthur Rubinstein at Carnegie Hall

We have a historic recording set for this Thursday, featuring one of the legendary musicians of the 20th century.

Arthur Rubinstein performs the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1in a 1946 performance with the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Dimitri Mitropoulos, who would later be named music director of the New York Philharmonic.

So here we have the dean of classical pianists, a regional orchestra, and an up-and-coming conductor; it's a combination that makes for some great energy. Tune in and see what you think.
