Notes & Reviews:

Czech pianist Otakar Hollmann (1894-1967) was a key figure in the repertoire for left-handed pianists. Although little known now, he was considered second only to Paul Wittgenstein in the promotion of the left-hand repertoire. He commissioned works from a number of composers, most notably Janacek and Martinu. He initially studied as a violinist, but, during World War I, a bullet went through his palm, permanently injuring his right hand. Many other Czech composers wrote works for Hollmann including Erwin Schulhoff, Bohuslav Foerster and Jaroslav Tomasek.
