Rubinstein could conduct with his eyes and hands. (I wonder if he ever did?)
I believe it’s Artur? In any case, his autobiography, esp, Vol I, should not be missed. It was an enviable life.
From Rubinstein auto-bio:
In later years, my manager Sol Hurok used the h-less “Artur” for my publicity, but I sign “Arthur” in countries where it is common practice, “Arturo” in Spain and Italy, and “Artur” in the Slav countries.
Hurok seems to have been quite a type…. About the problem of marketing his artists, he said: “If the audience doesn’t want to come to the concert, there’s nothing to stop them.”
