Artur Schnabel (April 17, 1882 – August 15, 1951) was a composer and also a pianist and teacher. His compositions were, in Ernst Krenek's words, "of remarkable and unusual significance." Schnabel was renowned for his seriousness as a musician, avoiding anything resembling pure technical bravura. He was said to have tended to disregard his own technical limitations in pursuit of his musical ideals. However, Schnabel is widely considered to be one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century
