Child prodigy who had one of history's longest performing-arts careers.
His presentation of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in Warsaw in 1901 kicked off a tour of Europe and America where he was heralded for his youthful abilities.
He briefly left performing in 1911 so he could study literature, philosophy, and art history in Paris.
He played at the White House for two different presidents: John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Carter.
