Leon Fleisher
This week on Exploring Music, help us wish a very happy 90th birthday to the man Pierre Monteux called “the pianistic find of the century.” On the campus of Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, where he has been teaching for fifty years, we sat down with Leon Fleisher who reminisced on his childhood in San Francisco, his studies with Artur Schnabel, his legendary early recordings, his health struggle which for decades robbed him of the full use of his right hand, and his triumphant return to two-handed repertoire. Our journey is accompanied by music of Brahms, Beethoven, Ravel, Schubert, Mozart, Britten, Copland, Kirchner, and a lovely arrangement of Jerome Kern’s “All the Things You Are.” Playlist information at exploringmusic.wfmt.com.
