Leon Fleisher’s new release 23 CDs box-set, Complete Album Collection on Sony

Posted on 19 May 2013 by admin

Leon Fleisher (born July 23, 1928) is an American pianist and conductor. He is particularly well known for his interpretations of the piano concerti of Brahms and Beethoven, which he recorded with George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra. They also recorded Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25, the Grieg and Schumann piano concertos, Franck’s Symphonic Variations, and Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. In 2004, Vanguard Classics released Leon Fleisher’s first “two-handed” recording since the 1960s, to critical acclaim his losted use of his right hand by focal dystonia and regained the use through a combination of Rolfing and botox injections. He is described as “a consummate musician whose career is a moving testament to the life-affirming power of art.”
