Left-Handed Pianist

At age 10, Norman Malone was attacked with a hammer to the head by his father, who then killed himself. Now paralyzed on his right side, and living in a housing project on Chicago’s South Side, Malone still was determined to become a pianist. Without ever telling anyone, he spent 60 years mastering the works written solely for the left-hand by great composers such as Brahms, Prokofiev, Ravel, and Britten. But after a chance encounter leads to a journalist discovering his extraordinary story, Malone begins to belatedly launch his concert career at age 78. Left-Handed Pianist offers a portrait of the concert pianist he has become as he takes on the greatest – and most difficult – pieces in the entire left-hand repertory, making his hidden talent public for the first time.
