Leon Fleisher gives a master class Nov. 14

Intl_Piano_LF1120.pdfThe Yale School of Music presents a master class with legendary pianist Leon Fleisher on Thursday, November 14. Once hailed by the French conductor Pierre Monteux as “the pianistic find of the century,” Mr. Fleisher began studying piano at age 9, when he became the youngest-ever student of Arthur Schnabel.

In the master class, Fleisher will work with three Yale School of Music student pianists. Jenny Chen will play Beethoven’s Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op. 53, “Waldstein.” Suzana Bartal, a past winner of the Woolsey Concerto Competition, will play Schubert’s Sonata in B-flat major, D. 960. Larry Weng will also play Schubert, concluding the class with the Sonata in A major, D. 959 (Op. posth). MORE
