Jed Distler
ClassicsToday.com, December 2000

"Artur Rubinstein's pioneering Chopin Polonaise cycle from the 1930s may not be as disciplined or scrupulous to the text as his LP-era remakes, yet the pianist's big-heartedness, rhythmic snap, and joie de vivre leap out and invite you in. Other 78-era artists like Solomon, Lhevinne, and Horowitz produced equally memorable (and cleaner) A-flat Polonaises, and Hofmann's Andante Spianato & Grande Polonaise remains supreme for scintillating lightness. But when Rubinstein launches into these works, it's soul music!"
