    Default Leon Fleisher (July 23, 1928 – August 2, 2020)



    Leon Fleisher (July 23, 1928 – August 2, 2020)



    An Artur Schnabel disciple, he taught generations of Peabody students in Baltimore the human way of making music. Whit his right hand was disabled by focal dystonia, he continued his performing career as a left-hand specialist, popularizing the concertos that had been written for the First War victim Paul Wittgenstein.

    Conductors, musicians and audiences alike appreciated his composed presence on stage. He made numerous, indelible recordings and was truly loved.
