From the Vanguard Classics website:

"in the past few weeks has been the return of Leon Fleisher to the Vanguard Classics label. The Maestro will be recording a two handed solo recital for the first time in over forty years. Having fought through an illness called "dystonia", the pianist has regained the use of his right hand enough to finally record again. Right now, the first disc is still being put together, but it will certainly be a collection of the pianist's favorite two handed piano music of Bach, Chopin, Debussy to name a few composers whose music will almost certainly be included. A second disc is also planned, probably some chamber music this time. But that's the thinking right now. Check back, because we reserve the right to change our minds."

Leon is one of my favorites and I can't describe how much I'm anticipating these releases.
