Description: Much of Leschetitzky’s production consists of character pieces for piano, and a closer study convinced the pianist here of the particular qualities of many of them. He was particularly impressed by the fact that even though they convey Leschetitzky’s own joy in masterful piano playing and place considerable demands on the performer, there are no displays of empty keyboard acrobatics. These are mostly later works, selected for their relative unavailability on disc. Tobias Bigger (piano).
