    Hi Eddy,

    Here are etudes for the right hand alone:

    Charles Alkan, Trois grandes etudes, Op. 76
    Richard Bennett, Five Studies for Piano
    Allan Blank, Six Studies for One Hand, Set 2 (right hand)
    Arthur Foote, Prelude-Etude, Op.37, No. 1
    Peter Fricker, Twelve Studies for Piano, Op. 58
    Frank Hutchens, Vienna Interlude: Piano Study
    Miriam Hyde, Three Studies
    Karl Kohn, Etude for the Right Hand
    Ellis Kohs, Etude Variations on a Sestatonic Scale After a Theme of Brahms
    Walter Lang, 10 Klavier-Etuden, Op. 74, No. 4
    Wladyslawa Markiewiczowna, Przy Studni, No. 5, Etiuda Na Prawa Reke
    Georges Migot, 5 Etudes en forme de suite
    Robert Pollock, Short Study
    Eugenie Rocherolle, Etude from Hands Separately
    Ned Rorem, Eight Etudes for Piano, No. 7
    Mary Wurm, Etude, Op. 42, No. 2

    You might find something of interest there. I culled these etudes from Piano Music for One Hand by Theodore Edel, Indiana University Press, 1994.

    David

    Thanks David. This is dissertation subject-matter. I only recognize Alkan and Rorem. I bet I would like the Kessler the best.

    Not a chance Richard. I truely think this is an odd category of piano works. I see no reason for it whatsoever (other than lacking a LH). It could be argued that the etude literature in general is less demanding for the LH than the RH, as is in keeping with the limits that each octave presents from an acoustics reality, and therefore some special approaches and works for the LH are not unreasonable to fill certain gaps in preparation. But the RH is entirely another thing and I see no justification for RH works other than the curious. I've got plenty occupying both my hands right now (including one LH piece). :)

    I agree with you that they are good to prepare the left hand for greater things, though in my case, being left handed, these would be less called for. I remember when I was still with the teacher, we tackled a Czerny Etude where the melody was on the left hand and she called it my "concert Etude"! :D

    Tut, tut, Eddy, being so interested in RH etudes but not wanting to play one ? I think you should bite the bullet now and record that Kessler etude. Or at least write a dissertation about it :mrgreen:
