Great Compositions/Performances: Rachmaninov / Artur Rubinstein, 1947: Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini, Op. 43 – RCA Vinyl

[youtube.com/watch?v=DpEAlVsMs9I]
From the LP shown above, issued in 1954. The recording you hear was made in 1947. Artur Rubinstein is soloist; Walter Susskind leads the Philharmonia Orchestra.

Note: Rubinstein hits a wrong note at the start of variation 19 (at about16:37). I would be interested to know if this error, for which at the time of this recording there was no technology to correct, has been edited in more recently produced CD versions of this performance.
