Moriz Rosenthal

Moriz (Moritz) Rosenthal, one of the great interpreters of Chopin and Liszt, was born in Lwow, Poland, on December 18, 1862. His early piano studies were with Karol Mikuli (a pupil of Chopin) and with Rafael Joseffy (a pupil of Liszt). In 1876 Rosenthal played an acclaimed debut recital in Vienna, followed by additional European concerts. He attended Liszt's classes in Weimar during that master's last years, then pursued the study of philosophy at the University of Vienna. His New York debut took place in 1888. Throughout his career Rosenthal was praised for his powerful virtuosity and his poetic sensitivity. He also wrote a number of short pieces for the piano and published articles on aspects of pianism. He did not begin making recordings until he was in his mid-60s. From 1938 until his death on September 3, 1946, Rosenthal lived in New York, teaching and occasionally performing.
