Piano Virtuoso Arthur Rubinstein
(right) is congratulated by Isaac
Stern, Violinist and president of Car-
negie Hall, yesterday morning at the
W. 57th St. Showplace of serious
music. Rubinstein, born before the
hall was built, was enshrined there
yesterday when a bronze bust of hlm
by sculptor 1V athan Rapoport was un-
veiled. The grand old man, born 89
years ago in Lodz, Poland, was a late
bloomer. He occasionally recalls that
he didn’t capture vast ublic acclaim
until he was past 5 espile his im-
mense musical achie ements and flair
for a wild life. Any lost time has cer-
tainly been made up for.
