BRAHMS CHACONNE LEFT HAND PDF

Johannes Brahms. The famed conductor Leopold Stokowski created an immense orchestral version in the s. And pianists have long made the Chaconne a concert favorite in the elaborate and virtuosic transcription by the legendary Italian pianist Ferruccio Busoni. But they say tennis is no fun without a net. And in crafting his austere and perhaps more reverential vision, Johannes Brahms was seeking a different musical truth. Using the technique adapted to a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings.

One can't help wondering why it is that so much music has been written for the left hand alone and virtually none of any significance for the right hand. The answer is that almost all of the great music written for the left hand alone is the result of a determinedly heroic concert pianist having lost his right arm during World War I.

Paul Wittgenstein , an Austrian pianist and, interestingly, brother of the celebrated philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, refused to allow his career as a concert pianist to be ended almost before it had begun in earnest by the loss of his arm.

Wittgenstein was in a position to ask many of the most important composers of the day to compose music for for him to play.

The left hand alone repertoire resulting from Wittgenstein's efforts has been veritable lifeline for other pianists as well who for one reason or another lost the use of their right arms.

Prior to Wittgenstein's injury, a number of composers had composed or transcribed such piano music. The Reinecke and Reger are curiosities, not particlarly brilliant pieces. There was an earlier pianist who lost his right arm, the Hungarian Count Geza Zichy, a student of Liszt and the first to have a very successful career as a one-armed pianist.

Grigory Sokolov b , Russian pianist recorded live in Adrian Vasilache, contemporary Romanian pianist recorded live in Zoltan Kocsis, Hungarian pianist b Takeo Tchinai, contemporary Japanese pianist.

I will address his work elsewhere in these pages. Suffice it to say for now that, in my esteem, and in the context of German composers, Henze is the Beethoven of the 20th Century. His music is that good, his opus that important.

And the future will support me in this view. For those of you who enjoy murder mysteries, here is my first with a strong musical polemic as background. Murder in the House of the Muse.
