Elisabeth Leonskaja

Live from London's Wigmore Hall, Elisabeth Leonskaja plays music by Schubert.
Born in Tbilisi, raised and educated in the Soviet era, Leonskaja belongs to the highly distinguished school of 'Russian' pianists. Like her friend and colleague Sviatoslav Richter she has made something of a speciality of the music of Schubert. This recital includes the so-called 'little' A Major Sonata and the almost symphonic Fantasy that Schubert based on one of his songs 'The Wanderer'.
Sean Rafferty presents.

Elisabeth Leonskaja (piano)
