The Left-Handed Piano
  • Edinburgh Fringe

There are scissors, pens and other tools for lefties, but a lefty piano? Melodies on the piano are often confined to the right hand, supported by chords in the left. International concert pianist and left-hander, Christopher Seed turned this back to front by creating the world's first left-handed piano. Since the premiere at the QEH, London in 1999, he has given concerts across the globe. Here he explains all and performs music by Schubert and Tchaikovsky in opposite directions. 'Whichever hand one claps with, Mr Seed deserves enthusiastic applause' (Times).
