The playlist includes:

Felix Blumenfeld - Etude op. 36
Aram Khachaturian - 4 pieces for children (slightly arranged)
Reinhold Glière - Impromptu op. 99/1
Ossip Gabrilowitsch - Etude op. 12/2
Klimenty Korchmarev - Prelude in c sharp minor (first recording)
Sergei Bortkiewicz - Epithalame op. 65/3
Dmitri Shostakovich - Prelude op. 87/13 (arranged)
Vladimir Blok - Sonatina (first recording)
Vladimir Pohl - Poème op. 17 (first recording)
Vladimir Ziring - Two Preludes op. 28 (first recording)
Nikolai Peyko - Sonata (1992)
Sergei Rachmaninov - Vocalise (arranged)

Anyone who's interested to know more can send me an e-mail or a private message.

Best regards, Folke.

Hello all again!

I am looking for some rare left hand music that was dedicated to Paul Wittgenstein.

Hans Gál: Piano quartet in A major (1926)

Juliusz Wolfsohn: "An der schönen blauen Donau" by Johann Strauss (Sohn) transcribed for piano left hand (1934)

Maybe one of you know where to find the scores? (I know the Gál is published, but it's quite expensive....)

An overview of Wittgenstein pieces can be found here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Works_a ... ttgenstein

Best regards, Folke.

Following my previous post: I did find the Gál Piano Quartet in the mean time. Quite a bit of virtuosity in there!

Another example of very charming music came along recently: the German romantic Alexis Hollaender. He wrote no less than 4 opuses of left hand pieces, stylistically rooted in Schumann’s music. I found the scores to his op. 31 and 52 pieces, but does anyone know where I could find the pieces op. 66 and 69??

Thanks in advance for helping!

Hi Folke

Just checked and both scores can be found in the Berlin State Library (old card index) - they are usually quite reasonable on costs for copies (likely 15-20 euros I would estimate for both scores).

does anyone have the Albert Biehl Op. 44 studies, which predominantly feature the LH, perhaps including some pieces for LH alone? I wanted to ask here first, before going on the hunt. Thank you!

Wonderful Malcolm, thanks a lot! Sometimes musical detectives need help from fellow detectives :)
