Piano Concert

About Piano Concert

Five fingers is all that Maxime Zecchini requires to not just play a piano but to make it sound like an entire orchestral composition. He is best known for practising the ‘left hand repertoire’, where a musician uses a single hand to play compositions that would ideally require all ten fingers.

Maxime is an internationally acclaimed French pianist, who travels the world to play the Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, a major piece written by composer Maurice Ravel between 1929 and 1930 for Paul Wittgenstein, an Austrian concert pianist, who lost his right arm in combat on the Russian front during the war. In this concert, in addition to the extract from the Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, the program will include the following:

· Scriabane: Prelude and Nocturne for the Left Hand,Opus 9 No 1

· Verdi: Misere, extract from the opera, ‘Il Trovatare‘

· Bellini: Casta Diva, extract from the opera, ‘Norma‘

· Massenet: Meditation from Thais

· Schulhoff: Suite No. 3

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Piano Concert are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
