Iconic American guitarist, composer and educator.
A multifaceted musician, David Leisner has won fame as an electrifying concert artist, a noted composer and a master teacher. One of the top prize winners in the legendary 1975 Toronto Guitar Competition, he has gone on to appear worldwide in recital and with major orchestras. Leisner has premiered works by Virgil Thompson, Ned Rorem and Philip Glass, and has had a distinguished teaching career at the New England Conservatory of Music.
"David Leisner is among the finest guitarists currently performing - and, given that the level of playing has never been higher, that means among the finest of all time."
Ken Keaton, American Record Guide
