GODOWSKY, L.: Piano Music, Vol. 12 (Scherbakov) - 6 Waltz Poems for the Left Hand Alone / Transcriptions

Leopold Godowsky’s stature as one of the world’s great piano virtuosi was maintained until a stroke ended his performing life in 1930. But, allied to his prodigious gifts as a performer, he also published a series of original compositions and transcriptions for the piano. In this twelfth volume of Konstantin Scherbakov’s critically acclaimed series, the focus falls on the delectable Six Waltz-Poems for the left hand and on an ingeniously crafted series of song transcriptions of well-known music by Schumann, Brahms, Schubert and also Carl Bohm. Godowsky additionally pays homage to Kreisler with his delicious transcription of the Rondino on a theme of Beethoven.
