I just received this:

Pianist Leon Fleisher on the PBS NEWSHOUR

Senior Correspondent Jeffrey Brown’s interview with legendary pianist Leon Fleisher will air on the PBS NEWSHOUR tonight (Monday, July 18). Fleisher sat down with Brown to talk about his life’s work in music, his struggle with an ailment that prevented him from playing with both of his hands, and his recent book ‘My Nine Lives: A Memoir of Many Careers in Music.’

Listening is the great secret….If you don’t hear before you play, what you play is an accident….You have to hear in your inner ear your goal, your ideal, what you want it to sound like.

Watch the full episode. See more PBS NewsHour.
