Elisabeth Leonskaja

Suzy Klein presents Russian pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja performing an all-Schubert recital at the Wigmore Hall, London. Schubert: Impromptu in F minor, D935; Sonata in D, D850.

Russian pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja has had a glittering career working with some of the world's greatest conductors such as Kurt Masur, Sir Colin Davis, Christoph Eschenbach, Kurt Sanderling and Mariss Jansons. However it is as a chamber musician and soloist that she has made her name, working with quartets such as the Alban Berg and Borodin, and earlier on as a duet partner to Sviatoslav Richter, who is said to have had a profound influence on her subsequent development as an artist. In today's recital, Leonskaja performs solo works by Schubert - his Impromptu No. 1 in F minor D935 and the Piano Sonata in D D850. Suzy Klein introduces today's concert live from Wigmore Hall.
