The closest Leo Blech (1880-1959) gets to fame these days is being mistaken for Ernest Bloch. Actually, some might still remember his seminal work as an opera conductor in Berlin, where he worked for almost half a century (except for the Nazi years). But his compositions - either operas or involving the voice in some other way - have disappeared from the repertoire. What a shame, because his music is, while less probing than that of his contemporary Bloch's, very much charming in the style of, say, Humperdinck or Rheinberger.
