A twist in the thread on Ravel's piano works has got me thinking about piano works for the south paw. It's not an area of piano literature I know well. I'm familiar with some of the standard works most pianists know (or know of)--Ravel, Britten, and so forth. Of this group, a favorite of mine is Brahms' l.h. study on the Bach Chaconne --I just really enjoy this work. Santiago Rodriguez's recording on the Elan label is incredible. I also like Korngold's piano concerto for the LH --I don't understand why it's not performed more often.

I am wondering what are some piano LH works others here might recommend (for listening or performing)?

Leopold Godowsky transcribed several of the Chopin Etudes (Imagine) for L.H.

The best recording that I know of is the recent Marc Andre Hamelin recording of all the Godowsky/Chopin Etudes (51 studies on 2 discs)

I would add Scriabin's Prelude and Nocturne for the Left Hand. They're technically approachable yet exceedingly beautiful.

Good old Schirmer !! I'll track this volume down -- looks like an interesting grab bag of things. Thanks for reminding me of the Scriabin works. Yes, they are very beautiful and manageable. As for Godowsky's sorcery, I look forward to hearing the Hamelin recordings. BTW, I came across these links while doing an internet search:
"Playing Left Handed Piano Music" http://www.unconservatory.org/articles/lhpiano.html
There is also an article for Jazz left hand: http://www.unconservatory.org/articles/lhjazz.html
(In general, the whole website is worth spending a bit of time surfing)
