Theodor Leschetizky

Leschetizky (1830-1915) was a Polish pianist, professor and composer. He composed over a hundred characteristic piano pieces and two operas: Die Brüder von San Marco and Die Erste Falte, thirteen songs and a one-movement piano concerto. Opus numbers were given to over 49 works.

Although his piano pieces are primarily smaller works, they are expressively lyrical while exploiting the piano's technical capabilities to great effect at the same time. Most of his music has been out of print since the early twentieth century except for the Andante Finale, Op. 13 and Les deux alouettes, Op. 2, No. 1.

Leschetizky taught until the age of 85. His life motto was "No life without art, no art without life!"
