Godowsky, Leopold
Godowsky, Leopold (born Vilnius, Feb 13, 1870; died New York, Nov 21, 1938), Polish pianist, one of the greatest virtuosos of his day. Born in Vilnius (now in Lithuania), Godowsky studied with Ernst Rudorff (close friend of Schenker) at the Berlin Hochschule für Musik in 1884. He was based in London 1886-90, and in the USA 1890-1900 (during which time he became a US citizen), thereafter returning to Berlin. In 1909, he moved to Vienna, where he led the Klavier Meisterschule at the Vienna Akademie für Musik und darstellende Kunst until 1914, at which point he returned to the USA. A stroke in 1930 ended his career, and he died in New York. ( NGDM Godowsky and Schenker There were at least two points of contact between Schenker and Godowsky. On February 6, 1910, Schenker expressed concerned that Godowsky had been allowed to see the proofs of his edition of the J. S. Bach when he himself had not yet seen them. (Hertzka explained that no proofs had yet been produced, and Godowsky's assistant had merely glimpsed the pile of manuscript for the work at the Universal Edition office:

LEOPOLD GODOWSKY
Morceau de concert La Trompette La cygne (The Swan), from the Carnival of the Animals , and on his own deathbed in 1938 had a friend play this to him. In 1890 Godowsky returned to America, where he joined the staff of the New York College of Music, married, and took out American citizenship. While continuing his career as a performer, he visited Philadelphia in 1894 and 1895, as the head of the piano department at the music school founded by Gilbert Raynold Combs, and from 1895 to 1900 led the piano department of the Chicago Conservatory. A successful concert in Berlin persuaded him to settle there in the latter year, teaching and using the city as his base for concert tours throughout Europe and the Near East. In 1909 he moved to Vienna to direct the piano masterclass at the Akademie der Tonkunst. There were American tours between 1912 and 1914 and with the outbreak of war Godowsky settled again in the United States, giving concerts and clarifying his innovative theories of keyboard technique in a series of editions and publications. At the same time he continued to write music of his own for the piano. He gave his last concert in the United States in 1922, but continued to tour throughout the world, acknowledged as one of the leading virtuosi of his time. His career as a performer was curtailed by a stroke in 1930, depriving him of the ability to play for the last eight years of his life. He was now increasingly led to pin his hopes for a lasting place in the history of music on his compositions and transcriptions for the piano. Such recognition, however, has been slow to come.

Leopold Godowsky's career as a concert pianist, which eventually would take him to every continent except Australia, began at age ten. In 1886, after a tour of North America, he returned to Europe, intending to study with Franz Liszt in Weimar . Upon learning of F. Liszt 's death shortly after his return, he traveled instead to Paris, where he was befriended by the composer and pianist

Leopold Godowsky (1870-1938)
by Jeremy Nicholas
(author of Godowsky - The Pianists' Pianist
I am not concerned at not being known; I seek to be worthy to be known. -K'ung fu-tzu, quoted by Godowsky in the foreword to his Bach transcriptions I love the piano and those who love the piano. The piano as a medium for expression is a whole world by itself. No other instrument can fill or replace its own say in the world of emotion, sentiment, poetry, imagery and fancy. -Leopold Godowsky in a letter to Maurice Aronson (Paris, 10th July 1931)
Godowsky was born on 13 February 1870, the only child of Anna and Matthew Godowsky, in Sozly, a little town not far from Wilno, the ancient capital of Lithuania. His father, a respected physician, died in a cholera epidemic only eighteen months after his son's birth. With barely enough money for food and lodgings, Anna and her infant son moved to nearby Schirwinty and thence, at the invitation of her friends Louis and Minna Passinock, to Wilno. Louis's consuming passion was music - a fine amateur violinist who ran a piano shop - and, having no children of his own, set about teaching young Leopold the violin in the hope that he might turn him into a second Paganini. Though his pupil was soon proficient enough to have mastered the solo part of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor it was to the piano that he was instinctively drawn, despite being actively discouraged at first. I would be very glad could I have stated with truth that I was a pupil of [Franz] Liszt or any other great man, but I was not. I have not had three months lessons in my life. I have been told I was playing the piano before I was two. I think, however, an imaginative family perpetrated this story. I cannot vouch for the truth one way or the other. I have had some extraordinary experience, and this may have happened. I do not remember whether anybody taught me the value and meaning of notes and the use of the fingers of the keyboard, or whether I acquired my knowledge in an autodidactic way, but I do remember that I had no help from my fifth year on.

Table of Contents: Leopold Godowsky Article Article External Web sites External Web sites Citations ARTICLE from the Leopold Godowsky Godowsky entered the Berlin High School for Music at age 14; soon thereafter he went to the United States , where he spent most of the remainder of his life. His first American concert was in 1884; by 1890 he was teaching at the New York College of Music. He became a U.S. citizen in 1891. Godowsky taught later in Philadelphia and Chicago and in Vienna from 1909 to 1914. He pursued an international career until 1930, when a stroke ended his playing. As a performer, Godowsky had a very advanced technique and a scholarly approach to the classics. Among his more than 400 original compositions and ornate transcriptions of older vocal and instrumental works are many that exploited his formidable dexterity but at the same time remain musically conservative. Most notable is his
