____________________________________________________ __*The Leschetizky Association celebrates its namesake's Birthday every year at this time with a concert. It seemed fitting, somehow, that the works of Liszt, who like Leschetizky studied with Carl Czerny, should be performed by this great Russian virtuoso who happens to be an Artist in Residence with The Drozdoff Society, whose founder happens to be (a) a distant relative of Carl Czerny, and (b) whose grandfather, Vladimir Drozdoff, studied with both Leschetizky and his second wife, Anna Essipova.
