At the Podium

In this one of a kind program, Fleisher’s son Julian joins him on stage for a spirited discussion. The Behind the Music style presentation treats audiences to moving stories from the colorful life of an incredible musician interspersed with short, live performances from a living legend.

Leon Fleisher has the additional gifts of communicating ideas and concepts tactilely, viscerally, emotionally, spiritually and verbally. He has conveyed in music all that is precious to him. Generations of musicians—including this one—have been truly blessed to hear him perform and receive his teaching.
