(1830 - 1915)

Theodor Leschetizky is remembered primarily as a legendary piano teacher. Polish by birth, he taught at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, founded by his friend Anton Rubinstein, and later moved to Vienna to teach privately. His pupils included Schnabel, Mark Hambourg and Moiseiwitsch.

Orchestral and Piano Music

Leschetizky’s principal compositions are for solo piano but also include a Piano Concerto. A one-act comic opera, Die erste Falte, was staged in Prague in 1867, but much that he wrote was in the form of salon pieces.
