There is a compelling argument for its reissue on DVD.
20 May 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

It is curious that, of all Rubinstein's prodigious output, both on vinyl & CD formats, The Rubinstein Collection - Volume 62 - The 1964 Moscow Concert - generally regarded as the pinnacle of his recorded music, should be remain absent from the Current Catalogues, at a time when almost all of the Volumes are available. Yahoo purport to have it available for $15.54, by way of download, but I have been unable to do this, in spite of all the preamble necessary to download this CD. Surely Naxos or Pearl could fill the gap? Equally, the Film, "L'Amour de la Vie" has been cruelly overlooked by the various companies. Surely IMDb can use their huge influence to try & correct this anomaly? Or maybe the BBC?
