7-25-15 Music in Maryland Leon Fleisher!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments

Earlier this week Leon Fleisher celebrated his 87th birthday on July 23.  I thought that this would be a good occasion to pay tribute to one of the most important musicians both at Peabody and in the Mid Atlantic Region.  I tried to pick repertoire from his earliest George Szell collaborations to his most recent recording entitled All The Things You Are.  Here are the listings…Hope you enjoyed the show.
