 Griffiths, Howard


Tansman composed his Concert Piece for the Left Hand for Paul Wittgenstein, an American exile, in 1943.  He left it merely in the form of a piano score.   For 65 years it remained unpublished, until 2008, when Polish composer Piotr Moss produced a congenial orchestration of the piece in response to a request from CPO. With this tremendous accomplishment, the music world has won back a highly significant work.  
 

"...Throughout the entire recital Seibert proves to be a very fine guide, possessing all the requisite mechnaical abilities, and always capturing the spirit of the musical moment. As the orchestral parts are complex and highly important to the sucess of these works, much credit must go to Howard Griffiths and the Brandenburg State orchestra Frankfurt- I could not imagine any ensemble sounding better in this music than they do here. Another winner from CPO!."
