Arthur Rubinstein (by Eva Rubinstein, 1969)

Cuenta el pianista Arthur Rubinstein que, paseando una tarde lluviosa por las calles londinenses junto a la soprano Emmy Destinn, ella le preguntó cómo tocaba Chopin. Lógicamente, su respuesta fue que nunca había oído tocar a Chopin, pero cuando llegó a casa, “una especie de instinto” le llevó a interpretar una de las piezas del compositor polaco, y sintió que sus manos no eran las suyas; tocaba como él jamás lo había hecho.

The pianist Arthur Rubinstein related that, strolling in a rainy afternoon through the streets of London with soprano Emmy Destinn, she asked him how played Chopin. Logically, his response was that he had never heard him play Chopin, but when he got home, “a kind of instinct” led him to interpret a piece of the Polish composer, and felt his hands were not theirs, as he played ever had.
