Alexander Zlatkovski

Greensleeves for the left hand alone

1,959 views 6 months ago
This is the piano arrangement of "Greensleeves" for the left hand alone. I created this arrangement as a challenge to myself, after working on Scriabin's prelude for the left hand.

A contemporary one-armed pianist said in an interview that his goal is to create the illusion that there are two hands playing. That was one of my goals too: to develop a rich texture and a full sound, resemblant of normal two-handed playing. I had a more important goal, though: not just to demonstrate a trick but to present a work of art, to show the beauty and harmony of this music, unhindered by the self-imposed limits of playing with only 5 digits. I hope I succeeded...

Comments are welcome. Feel free to share!
