Blessed by the fortune of having Shostakovich as a teacher, and therefore belonging to the restricted group of students invited to play for the master at home, Elisabeth Leonskaja nevertheless has stood out on the international platform for her undisputed talent and her unique approach to the piano repertoire. Sviatoslav Richter identified these qualities in her when he created an extraordinary artistic closeness with Leonskaja. She says she still revisits the teachings of Richter today; the greatest of all could not be simpler or more demanding: “play with the heart”.
