KEYBOARD OPUSES (PIANO PIECES) BY GRAF (COUNT) GEZA ZICHY FOR THE LEFT HAND ALONE
Boris Miroslavov Mirchev
Summary: Established as an exotic branch of the mainstream piano literature (for two hands and more) around two centuries ago, left hand piano literature has gained reputation as a full blooded cultural phenomenon. This kind of piano pieces allow any concert pianist to display their craftmanship completely in an even more challenging way than the ordinary two hand pieces. As a matter of fact, some masterpieces have been written for the left hand alone: Prelude and Nocturne for the left hand alone op.9 by Scriabin or Ravel’s piano concerto for the left hand alone. Count Geza Gichy definitely is one of the pioneers in this area both as composer and performer. Due to doctor Alexander Varro, the entire set of left hand piano opuses of count Gichy were published in Bulgaria, except his piano concerto. This edition is the base for our small research.
Key words: piano literature for the left hand alone, Geza Zichy, Scriabin nocturne for the left hand, doctor Alexander Varro
