If only this marvelous film were available on DVD...
I saw this film in a movie theater when it was released in 1969. It features rare interviews of Artur Rubinstein in his home talking about his life and his music, as well as many samples of his solo performances and of his piano concerti accompanied by full orchestra. It is a highly enjoyable portrait of the man and his music, with no intrusions by others seeking commercial gain from his legacy. I just wish this marvelous film were available on DVD for his legions of fans to purchase and enjoy. That would be a treasure indeed!
