Description

Robert Mitchell, one of the most exciting pianists performing in the UK today, presents an album of music that celebrates left hand only piano playing. 'The Glimpse' explores Mitchell's wider fascination with history's treatment of left-handers deemed to be second-class citizens purely because they are in a minority.

From sublime, introspective improvisations that engulf the entire range of the piano, to a masterful reworking of Fred Hersch's "Nocturne for the Left Hand Only", 'The Glimpse' is a strikingly original album of music from Mitchell, whose journey as an acclaimed solo artist continues to grow without boundaries in vision or scope. There is no doubt that this album will be regarded as an important and essential contribution to the canon of Left-Hand only, solo piano approach.

Personnel: Robert Mitchell (solo left-handed piano)
