Leonardo Le San has a wide range of performance experience throughout the music world and has gone on tour performing solo piano in South America through the fall of 2006, sponsored by Export Corporations. During 2005 after the artist had finished his University studies, Mr. Le San was asked to give a piano recital at the Delaware Theater as the opening performer for acclaimed violinist and GRAMMY® Nominated Artist, Regina Carter. And, recently during the Christie Awards 2006 the executive directors distinguished Mr. Le San as "the future of the arts," before a very enthusiastic audience.
While performing a piano recital last year the artist was discovered by Chopin authority, concert pianist, composer and theorist, Dr. Orlando Otey. Dr. Otey selected Leonardo as the pianist with the right "flair" to take on the Chopin heritage. Mr. Le San has tremendous passion for recording and performing, and has had experiences collaborating in work-shops taught by prominent musicians such as Sony-Classical producer and 2000 GRAMMY® Winner Andreas Mayer. Mr. Le San also recorded works by Bach, Debussy and Prokofiev as final projects for Mr. Mayer's pupils.
Mr. Le San has written two works for strings, flute and piano, one orchestral piece for Soprano and Orchestra, some of his piano works are titled Noctazia, Conversation, Incomprehensible, and Nocturne in E minor. He has also written two compositions featuring Alto Saxophone accompanied by a large Jazz ensemble. Mr. Le San has also performed live the first movement of the Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 3, works by Beethoven, Liszt and many other great classical and romantic composers.
The artist has recorded two works with an ensemble as vocalist and composer with the legendary Producer Louis Garcia who has done more than a thousand productions for Sony, BMG and other record labels. These two works were given air-play in different radio stations in the US, and Mr. Le San also performed on TV Channel 6 (ABC) in a 1999 broadcast.
