Leó Weiner was a major Hungarian music educator of the first half of the twentieth century and a talented, although almost unknown, composer who produced a large number of "popular" works, mostly for chamber and piano.
He learned music at the Landesakademie of Musical art in Budapest in 1901, where he studied with János Koessler.
Like other hungarian composers he was very attracted by hungarian folk music.
He was working as a "répétiteur" when he won a prize that allowed him to undetake musical studies in Vienna, Munich, Berlin, and fianlly Paris.
He returned to the Landesakademie in 1908, now as a teacher. He remained a faculty member there for the rest of his life, being appointed Professor of Composition in 1912 and Professor of Chamber Music in 1920 until 1949.
