Ignace Leybach

March 28, 2013

Wikipedia informs us that Leybach (1817-1891) was a teacher, pianist and organist, and a composer of salon piano music. He was a famous pianist in his time, but is largely remembered for a single piece, his Fifth Nocturne, Op. 52, number 5, for solo piano. Listen to the Nocturne on YouTube.

    Thanks for the further information on an unknown composer. A pleasant piece though we find it hard to relate it to the Rubaiyat!
