Widely acknowledged as one of the world's most revered pianists, Arthur Rubinstein gives us a breathtaking performance of Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2, accompanied by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Zubin Mehta; this is followed by Chopin's sparkling "Heroique" Polonaise No. 6. The second part of this video is a presentation of Rubinstein in conversation with Bernard Levin, from the BBC's flagship Omnibus programme in 1968; this is a rare document that offers fascinating insights into Rubinstein's musical genius.
