Kreutzer was born to a family of German Jewish parents. Studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, there with Glazounov for composition and A. Essipova for piano. He was a highly influential piano teacher at the Berlin Academy of Music (Berliner Hochschule für Musik), together with Egon Petri. He also gave musically and technically demanding solo recitals, mostly dedicated to specific composers or themes. He wrote one of the first works on systematic use of the piano pedal ("Das normale Klavierpedal vom akustischen und ästhetischen Standpunkt", 1915).

Performances of Chopin's works as originally written for the piano were focused around the foreign music school teachers Raphael von Koebel (1848-1923), Rudolf Ernest Reuter (1888-?), and Hanka Schjelderup Petzold (1862-1937). In recitals, beginning in schools and metropolitan areas, works ranging from the Fantasie-Impromptu Op. 66 and the Berceuse Op. 57 to many of Chopin's other works, were performed. The filling of a post at the Tokyo Music School by Leonid Kreutzer (1884-1953) in 1937 was a turning point in Chopin's reception in Japan. Native to Russia, Kreutzer studied composition and piano at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, and later took a teaching position at the Berlin Academy of Music. He visited Japan for the first time in 1931, performing a programme which included Chopin, and also giving a masterclass.
