Four Hands, featuring celebrated American pianist, Leon Fleisher together with his wife, pianist Katherine Jacobson. Four Hands includes the famous "Liebeslieder Waltzes for Piano 4 Hands, Op. 52a" by Johannes Brahms, works described by Ernest Lubin as being "among the loveliest and most beguiling of all Brahms' compositions"; Franz Schubert's "Fantasia in F minor for Piano 4 Hands D940" from the composer who wrote a great deal of four-hand piano music, this being one of his most well-known pieces; Maurice Ravel's famous "La Valse," arranged here for four hands by Lucien Garban, editor and lifelong friend to Ravel, and "Graceful Ghost Rag" by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer, William Bolcom, who specializes in mixing popular and classical forms. Leon Fleisher was a child prodigy who became Artur Schnabel's youngest student at the age of ten, thus continuing a long line of piano tradition reaching back to Beethoven himself. Described by The Independent as "One of the outstanding musicians of our time," Fleisher is currently experiencing a welcome revival both in the recording studio and on the concert platform

"Renowned American pianist and conductor Leon Fleisher was a child prodigy. The son of first generation Jewish immigrants from Russia, he began piano lessons at four, gave his first public recital at eight and at nine he became the youngest student ever to be taken on by piano virtuoso Arthur Schnabel. Whilst on a nostalgic trip to his old teacher's villa on the shores of Lake Como, Fleisher reminiscences about his career. We also see him in musical workshops with his current students and hear from his family, friends and admirers."--SBS website
