This performing arts facility comprises of two unique venues named Muriel Kauffman Theater and Helzberg Hall that opened its doors to public in 2011. The Kansas City Symphony was originally created as the first symphony in Kansas City in 1911. Unfortunately, it stopped operating in the beginning of World War I since many musicians went on war. The symphony was replaced by the Kansas City Philharmonic in 1933 but dissolved again in 1982. Keeping in view the need of a new symphony in the city, R. Crosby Kemper, Jr. founded the Kansas City Symphony with Donald J. Hall, Sr. and Henry W. Bloch as the founding trustees.
Born in 1928, Leon Fleisher displayed interest of piano playing from the very beginning and began to play piano when he was only four. Soon, he was withdrawn from the kindergarten and received formal training on piano from the private tutors. He delivered his first public recital to great acclaim when he was only eight years old. Fleisher pulls inspiration from the second director of the San Francisco Symphony, Alfred Hertz and the great French conductor, Pierre Monteux. He has risen to immense international prominence after winning the prestigious and world famous Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition in Brussels. Fleisher developed a neurological disorder at the age of thirty six but remained in high spirits and did not give up. Since two fingers of his right hand were paralyzed, he went to search a new boulevard of music that focused only on the repertoire of left hand.
Within few years, Fleisher grew as a remarkable left hand soloist, brilliant conductor and an amazing teacher. He has exhibited excellent musicianship at several leading venues of the world including London Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Irish Chamber Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. And now Fleisher is ready to showcase his talent at the Kansas City Symphony Leon Fleisher Plays Rivael musical.
