About

Paul Wittgenstein commissioned 17 scores which were all superbly remunerated. However, only one was considered an undisputed masterpiece… It remains an essential part of the literature, not only for permanently or temporarily one-armed artists, but also for all those who want to exercise their mind as much as their fingers. Who today would dare write for a single hand: after a century of practice, the left one is armed and ready to play!
