He was to his day what Leschetizky, the teacher of Paderewski, is now.
We hear a great deal these days about the Leschetizky method.
Clara Clemens wished to study the piano under Leschetizky, and this would take them to Austria for the winter.
This was followed by four years under Leschetizky in Vienna.
All these artists and many more visited Vienna, and Leschetizky heard them often.
During these years Leschetizky played a great deal in public.
Leschetizky bought a house and settled down, thinking to rest from teaching for a time.
"Artists say too much about the materials they have to use," says Leschetizky.
It is a well-known fact that Leschetizky advises memorizing away from the instrument.
If that is so, Leschetizky stands high in the scale, for he is full of good intentions.
