 Update me on new releases by Weiner

Leo Weiner (4/16/1885 - 9/13/1960)

Leo Weiner was born on April 16th, 1885 in Budapest. His parents did not give him a musical education. He began his musical studies on his own initiative and learned to compose by analysing the works of the great composers. At the age of 16 he applied for admission to the Liszt Academy in Budapest, where he was a pupil of János Koessler (1853–1926), a representative of the Brahms tradition, and who was the teacher of Bartók, Kodály, Dohnányi, Emerich Kálmán and Victor Jacobi, among others. Weiner himself taught there from 1907 until his death. In his chamber music faculty he taught generations of musicians for half a century. Almost all the world-famous Hungarian musicians of this period were his pupils. Weiner was not only the living embodiment of a tradition, but he consolidated his pedagogical activity with his writings (text books on music theory, musical analyses).

Weiner’s career as a composer began like a comet. In his fifth year of study he won all the awards possible at the Liszt Academy. In 1908 he was awarded the Franz Joseph prize for his compositions, and this covered his study tour around Europe, to Vienna, Munich, Berlin and Paris.
