PAUL WITTGENSTEIN The man with the left golden arm
Paul Wittgenstein ordered for 17 scores which were all superbly remunerated. Only a single one
an undisputed masterpiece . . . It remains an essential literature, not only for permanently or
temporarily one-armed artists, but also for all those who want to exercise their mind as much as
their fingers. Who will today dare to write for a single hand: after a century of practice, the left one
has lost its fiendish clumsiness!
