“Theodor Leschetizky’s father was a gifted composition teacher, Simon Sechter, subsequently the teacher of Anton Bruckner. At the invitation of his friend Anton Rubinstein he went to St. Petersburg to teach in the court of the Grand Duchess Helen. Remaining there from 1852 to 1877, he was one of the founders of the St. Petersburg Conservatory of Music in 1862. His descendants still live in Bad Ischl and there is a Leschetizky Villa, the summer resort, where Theodor Leschetizky often vacationed with his friend Johannes Brahms.”
