This performance put a huge smile on my face.

Arthur Rubinstein with Andre Previn and the LSO. Looks to be 1969 making AR 82 years old. What a pianist what an orchestra!

He called this concerto his “war horse”.❤️ I heard him play twice, once with an orchestra in NYC and once in recital in Princeton. I don’t remember what he played in NYC but it could have been this or the Grieg. It was either 1967 or 68. Anyone know where to find out his performance programs?

Perhaps we should post the ENTIRE concert that includes the Grieg concerto, Chopin's 2nd concerto, and, the Saint-Saëns 2nd concerto:



Have owned the DVD recording to these great performances for many years and it appears to still be available, here:

That’s too bad. The New York concert was probably February 1968. The Princeton recital was definitely during the spring of 69. I’d love to get my hands on the programs.

Actually, these performances from Fairfield Hall is Croydon were filmed in 1975, which makes them all the more impressive.

The composers want performers be imaginative, in the direction of their thinking--not just robots, who execute orders.

Thanks for the info (more than one concertos ... and 1975 Fairfield Hall ...)

Rubinstein said this in his memoir "(in 1975) ... I was to work ... on a new series of video cassettes, this time with Andre Previn and the London Symphony in London. It was good work, Previn proved to be a fine musician but I suffered abominably facing the many spotlights, which my poor eyes resented for weeks."

I recently learned that Jeanne-Marie Darré played all 5 Saint-Saëns concerti in one concert. And David Dubal said Teresa Carreno "often played Beethoven's Third, Fourth, and Fifth Concerti in a single evening without a thrug."
