Schnabel, Artur. (1882–1951)
Signed Concert Progam
Concert program from a March 8–10, 1939 performance with the New York Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall, signed to cover by the Austrian-born pianist.

Schnabel's recordings of Schubert and Beethoven are classics, considered by many as being beyond compare to this day. His teacher Theodor Leschetizky once told him: “You will never be a pianist. You are a musician.”
