Maxime Zecchini; Piano for the Left Hand at La Maison Française NYU

Thursday April 11, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

“I had the idea of exploring the left hand repertoire, with 600 pieces, a few years ago when I first studied Ravel’s Concerto pour la main gauche. The idea that the playing of just five fingers could sound like two hands seemed like an extraordinary wonder to me.

But a number of composers have managed to take up the challenge with exceptional talent. These works display the left hand’s vast capacities. At its best, it can make the piano sound like a full orchestra, by using the positioning of its fingers, its natural flexibility, and its powerful range in the keyboard’s low notes.” – Maxime Zecchini
