Artur Schnabel (1882 - 1951)

Although Schnabel’s parents were not musicians, they encouraged their children to study the piano. At the age of six, young Artur played for Hans Schmitt, a professor at the Vienna Conservatory. The Schnabel family moved to Vienna, where Artur had been accepted as a pupil by the great teacher Theodor Leschetizky, but by the time he was eleven the family had to return to their commitments in the town of Bielitz. Schnabel therefore lived in lodgings with another family, as his parents could not return to Vienna for four years. Leschetizky had already realised Schnabel’s special talent when he said of him, ‘You will never be a pianist; you are a musician.’ Instead of prescribing a musical diet of Chopin, Liszt, paraphrases and transcriptions, Leschetizky encouraged Schnabel to explore the piano sonatas of Schubert, works which at that time were rarely played, and he also arranged for Schnabel to study theory and composition with Eusebius Mandyczewski.
