Ethel Leginska

Ethel Leginska was born Ethel Liggins in Hull, England, on April 13, 1886. Her early piano studies were with Berhard Sekles in Frankfurt, then in Vienna where she began to work with Leschetizky at age 15. Major engagements followed, first in England, then in various musical centers of Europe. Leginska's American debut took place in 1913. She continued to attract audiences and favorable notices well into the 1930s, but gradually shifted her focus toward conducting, composing, and teaching. Leginska settled in Los Angeles, where she remained active until her death on February 20, 1970.
