Notes & Reviews:

One of the most dazzling and sublime pianists of his age, Leon Fleisher has triumphed in a career of uncommon breadth and drama. Fleisher was only fifteen when legendary conductor Pierre Monteux hailed him as "the pianistic find of the century." His brilliant career - superbly documented in his recordings for CBS Masterworks - was cut short by an early onset of carpal tunnel syndrome in his right hand, which forced him to focus for many years on repertoire for piano left hand. In the last decade following new forms of treatment and therapy, Fleisher has miraculously resumed his performance of two-hand literature. This new recording of Mozart Piano Concertos is a welcome addition to Leon Fleisher's distinguished catalogue of recordings.
