(NL) Semibrevity "A Blog About Early Music Pioneers" Article: "Gustav Leonhardt (1928–2012), the end of an era" (19 jan 2012)
“It’s so sad that Gustav Leonhardt is no more.
I first heard him, partnered by Frans Brüggen in a concert in St Albans. Since then, I’ve seen him many times and, apart from the extraordinary playing, have often been struck by the fact that he mostly used his own elegant manuscript scores, presumably copied from ancient tomes during his early years in Vienna.
