Bringing Leo Ornstein Back From 60 Years Of Self-Imposed Oblivion
"Ornstein was considered among the most influential composer/performers in the decade before World War I, and maybe the most sensationalized. ... Though [he] arrived in the 1930s as one of the most famous pianists of his day, he departed so quietly in the late 1950s - by choice - that nobody quite knows when he left. His death in 2002 at age 107 ... was noticed, but not widely." The Philadelphia Inquirer 11/19/13
