Mischa Levitzki

Mischa Levitzki (1898-1941) was a Russian-born American concert pianist. He made his American debut in New York on October 17, 1916, at Aeolian Hall. Levitzki concertized worldwide up until the time of his death. He toured in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Asia, making a reputation with his performances of the Romantic repertory. He transcribed numerous pieces for piano, prepared a cadenza for Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto, and wrote small pieces for the piano. Among his most popular compositions for piano were The Enchanted Nymph, Valse in A, Valse tzigane, and a gavotte.

He also recorded extensively for the AMPICO Piano Roll Company during the 1920s and 1930s. Many of his rolls were very popular then and are still popular amongst the AMPICO collectors of today.

Levitzki died suddenly of a heart attack at age 42. Levitski's papers are conserved at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
