Leopold Godowsky (1870-1938) was a Lithuanian-born pianist, who trained in Berlin. He emigrated to the United States and was naturalized in 1891. He travelled extensively, and recorded, but this career was ended by a stroke in 1931. He continued composing and arranging until his death. He made various virtuoso transcriptions of orchestral works, notably Strauss waltzes.
