GODOWSKY, L.: Piano Music, Vol. 11 (Scherbakov) - Symphonic Metamorphosis of the themes from Der Zigeunerbaron / Suite for the Left Hand

Leopold Godowsky, one of the world’s greatest piano virtuosos, wrote a sequence of demanding works for his own instrument that fully reveal his exceptional command of the keyboard. The 1929 Six Pieces for both hands, each dedicated to a celebrated fellow pianist, are full of huge vitality, whilst the Suite for the left hand alone hints at baroque procedure in its movement titles but actually revels in late-romantic richness of expression. The Symphonic Metamorphoses on themes from the Gypsy Baron, only published after Godowsky’s death, is a brilliantly artful concoction.
