Leon Bates reviews


LEON BATES IN VIENNA:
"Leon Bates was top performance with ' Rhapsody in Blue:' Brilliant, powerful, a virtuoso. He has Gershwin in his little fingers, in his spirit, and in his intellect."
--Vienna Symphony
LEON BATES IN NEW YORK:
"Rarer still is the artist who can carry off as wise an interpretive touch..." --New York Times
LEON BATES IN SAN FRANCISCO:
"Even on a day like Sunday when the piano was king on The City's concert circuit, Leon Bates merits at least a duchy of his own."
--San Francisco Chronicle
LEON BATES WITH THE PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA:
"His firm rhythmic sense was not unyielding. He made the jaunty sol o passages sound like elegant improvisations... He gave such impetus to the first movement that he was interrupted by applause at the end."
---Philadelphia Inquirer
LEON BATES IN DETROIT:
"...catch Bates when you can. He will be one of the great ones."
--Detroit Free Press
