Nicholas McCarthy Solo
Out of stock
Born without his right hand, award-winning British pianist Nicholas Mccarthy is a champion of the brave, dynamic world of left-hand repertoire. here, in his first solo album, he scales the heights of expressive and virtuosic possibility, presenting his own and others’ transcriptions of works – many of them classical favourites, such as Puccini’s “o mio babbino caro” and Gershwin’s “summertime” – alongside pieces written especially for the left hand. the result is a fascinating and absorbing programme which traces the history of this unique genre from its nineteenth-century beginnings to the present day.
