Piano Concert

Piano Concert

We are delighted to invite you to a special concert by French pianist Maxime Zecchini at the City Chambers on 9th November.

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:

.         Scriabine : Prelude and Nocturne for the Left Hand,Opus 9 No 1

·         Verdi : Miserere, extract from the opera,‘Il Trovatore

·         Massenet : Meditation from Thais

.         Ravel : Transcription of the Concerto for the left hand

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

·         Schulhoff Suite No. 3
