One-handed pianist comes to Istanbul
ISTANBULNicholas McCarthy, the world’s only one-handed concert pianist, will perform on the Zorlu PSM stage on May 21.
The British pianist has just released his first Album, “Solo” with Warner Classics and is an Official Yamaha Artist.
Born in 1989 without his right hand, McCarthy discovered the piano aged 14. He first specialized in the Left Hand Alone repertoire, which began in the 19th century and later particularly developed for use by combatants injured during the First World War.
McCarthy went on to gain a place at the Royal College of Music, where his historic graduation in 2012 made press around the world. His graduation was followed by playing at the Paralympic closing ceremony and sharing a stage with Coldplay.
The artist’s international concert career began in 2010 and has seen him tour Malta, South Africa, make his U.S. debut at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C, and address the Royal Albert Hall last September.
Tickets for the concert in Istanbul are available via Biletix.
