Leon Fleisher One of the greatest pianists of the 20th century, Leon Fleisher, will turn 80 July 23. Fleisher’s life has been a great inspiration. After a glorious early career, he lost the use of his right hand, a challenge that would have been the end of hope for many. His subsequent championing of left-hand piano repertoire and, more recently, his regaining of the use of his right hand after decades of experimental treatments and even brain surgery, have secured him as an icon of perseverance. Tune to WRR to enjoy many of his unforgettable renditions throughout the day and evening July 23.
