Arthur Rubinstein Story

From a biography of Arthur Rubinstein, the great pianist:

“…after 1932 [he] refused to play in Germany. He never had been an orthodox Jew, but he foresaw the rise of the Nazi movement, with all of its

implications. Nor did he ever return to Germany. In later life he said there were only two countries in which he would not play ““ Tibet, because it was too

high, and Germany, because it was too low.”

 “The Glorious Ones” by Harold C. Schonberg
