Who was Ignaz Tiegerman?

Ignaz Tiegerman was a Polish pianist and teacher.

He was an exceptional interpreter of the Romantic school. He studied with Leschetizky but his lessons with Ignaz Friedman were more significant. Tiegerman considered Friedman his mentor, and Friedman deemed him "the greatest talent I ever worked with." His recordings are highly regarded, despite their not being of studio sound quality in most cases. He was said to be the only rival Horowitz ever feared. Due to health reasons, he spent most of his life teaching in Cairo. His finest pupil is Henri Barda, and he also taught Edward Said, Mario Feninger and Prince Hassan Aziz Hassan. Hassan called him "a wonder of human realization" and Said later recalled many wonderful late-night conversations with him
