Rene Leibowitz

René Leibowitz (February 17, 1913 – August 29, 1972) was a French composer, conductor, music theorist and teacher born in Warsaw, Poland.

During the early 1930s, Leibowitz studied composition and orchestration with Schoenberg, Webern and Ravel. Many of the works of the Second Viennese School were first heard in France at the International Festival of Chamber Music set up by Leibowitz in Paris in 1947. Leibowitz"s activity as a teacher was highly influential in establishing the reputation of these composers, further advocated by such pupils as Boulez and Jacques-Louis Monod.

As conductor, Leibowitz was active in many recording projects. One of the most widely circulated and most notable is a set of the Beethoven symphonies made for Reader"s Digest Recordings; it was apparently the first recording of the symphonies to follow Beethoven"s original metronome markings. In choosing this approach, Leibowitz was influenced by his friend and colleague Rudolf Kolisch.
