The most celebrated piano pieces for the left hand

The idea of exploring this repertoire, rich in 600 works, came to me a few years ago when I was studying for the first time the Concerto pour la Main Gauche by Maurice Ravel. The wonder of having the impression of hearing two hands when only five fingers were playing fascinated me.
These pieces demonstrate the immense possibilities of the left hand. Thanks to the arrangement of left-hand fingers, its natural flexibility, and the powerful register in the bass of the keyboard, it can even make the piano sound like an orchestra!
I am very happy to be able to discover the undeniable poetic richness of this original, virtuoso, and spectacular repertoire. – Maxime Zecchini
