Gieseking Walter

Walter Gieseking (1895-1956) was a German pianist and composer who had brilliant yet controversial career as a concert pianist since he continued to perform for Nazi Party during the World War II.
Gieseking is also known as a co-author of so-called "Leimer method" for piano: critical self-hearing with emphasis on proper understanding of music as the basis of proper technique for the piano (before starting to play, the student is asked to visualize the piece through silent reading).
The book describing the method - "The Shortest Way to Pianistic perfection" was developed after his studies with Karl Leimer at the Hanover Conservatory.
Gieseking was very well-known pianist and practically unknown composer during his lifetime. Sonatine for Flute and Piano is one of rare pieces that have survived throughout the years since Gieseking himself didn't bother much for publishing his works but rather devoted his time and energy to his hobby: collecting butterflies.
