About the Leon Fleisher Collection

Leon Fleisher, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Chair in Piano, has been teaching at the Peabody Conservatory for over forty years. In 2012, he donated his concert and masterclass programs, press material, correspondence, itineraries, photographs, clippings, personal papers, scrapbooks, and memorabilia to the Peabody Archives. The Leon Fleisher Collection consists of 25 linear feet of material relating to the great pianist, conductor, and teacher, and his wife, Katherine Jacobson Fleisher. Over 1,000 of these items have been digitized, and are available through the Fleisher Digital Collection. The Peabody Archives also houses the Theatre Chamber Players Collection. Fleisher co-founded this ensemble, and many Peabody faculty and alumni performed in its over thirty years of concerts, which featured and commissioned contemporary chamber music.
