Arthur Rubinstein The Complete Album Collection RCA 142 CD


Post on request.All credits goes to the original ripper xbrg.



From December on, "Arthur Rubinstein The Complete Album Collection" will be the world's biggest CD edition for a solo artist according to Guinness World Records (TM). It features all the legendary pianist's issued recordings made by RCA Victor between 1940 and 1976, and includes one LP issued on the DECCA label in 1978. The collection also includes the recordings Rubinstein made in England for the English label His Master's Voice (HMV) between 1928 and 1940, most of which were released in the United States by RCA on its Victor label. The collection includes complete studio and live performances, solo, concerto and chamber music repertoire in reproductions of original LP sleeves and labels, the earlier recordings, initially released on 78-rpm discs, appear in three sets with 14 CDs in the edition.

The bonus CDs in this edition (CDs 140-142) contain recordings of his legendary 1961 cycle of ten concerts at New York's Carnegie Hall. They include four works that Rubinstein had never before committed to disc plus two others that represent brand-new additions to his RCA discography.

This edition also boasts the finest sound quality ever bestowed on Arthur Rubinstein's complete recordings. The masters for the principal works in the collection come from the series of Living Stereo SACDs and Japanese XRCDs. All the other recordings are based on masters from the Rubinstein Collection of 1999, technically and sonically refurbished for this edition. In cases where the desired results could not be obtained, Sony Classical has gone back to the original analogue tapes.

The 164-page full-colored hardcover book in landscape format includes new liner notes by Rubinstein biographer Harvey Sachs, photos shot or selected by Arthur Rubinstein's daughter Eva Rubinstein, an essay about the legendary 1961 Carnegie Hall concerts, complete discography in alphabetical and chronological order featuring 78s, 45s and LPs and track listings with complete discographical notes, producer names and matrix nos.

The two bonus DVDs are "Rubinstein Remembered", a documentary tracing the great pianist's life from his origins in ód , Poland, through his final concert there in 1975, with interviews from family and friends, newsreels, home movies, TV interviews and performance footage. Narrated by Rubinstein's son John Rubinstein and produced by Peter Rosen and the "The Benefit Recital for Israel 1976" recorded at Ambassador College, Pasadena, California on Jan 15, 1975 featuring works by Beethoven, Schumann, Debussy, Chopin and Mendelssohn.

The "Arthur Rubinstein Complete Album Collection" consists almost entirely of reproductions of vinyl LPs in their original sleeves. The few exceptions that were only released on CD retain their original CD cover. Thus for the first time ever, music lovers have the opportunity of discovering every single one of Rubinstein's original albums in a single issue.

  7. Hello Bayreuth.
    Sorry to bother you with my troubles, but: While extracting the rar-files, several programs tripped over part 31 ( http://ul.to/69f0uiqw ). "CRC failed". Will you please check that "mystery". Thank you in advance and kind regards. jc

    2. Hallo Bayreuth.
      I'm afraid there is a whole bunch of parts still missing: As there is one "part" for one "CD" and as there are a total of 89 parts, 59 parts are still missing. I managed to extract CD001 to CD 014and CD100 to 128. My UnrarX stopped at mid-CD129, extracting only the cue-part of that one.
      So, are still missing: CD015 to CD099 (incl.) and CD129 (still not extractable) to CD142. Tough work :-))
      Thanks for your effort and greetings. jc

    3. "59 are still missing": My error: 53 (!) Sorry. jc

    4. Hi jc,

      everything went absolutely fine for me. I extracted the files on Mac with The Unarchiver. The only strange thing I noticed is the order in which the app extracted the discs. First, from 001 to 014, then from 100 to 142, finally from 015 to 099. Check that every rar.part has the same size (314,6 MB, I believe) apart from the last one (rar.part No. 89), then you may try another app.
      Hope it helps.

    5. Hi Onkle.
      First of all thanks for your comment. I extracted the files too on Mac with The Unarchiwer and in addition with The Archive Browser and UnrarX. Finally I suppose that the muddle happened during download.
      I'm going to repeat the whole matter. I'll keep you informed.

    6. Hi Onkle,
      you were perfectly right. The initial problem was a failed download of part 30, which I didn‘t notice. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this interlude. Greetings to all melomaniacs. All's well that ends well.

    7. Failed or partial downloads are the most common reasons for this type of issues. Happy to read that everything ended well. :)
