    This morning, while I was having my first cup of coffee for the day, I was thinking. I asked myself if I had ever in my life seen a one-armed piano player. I never have. Have any of you folks out there ever seen a one-armed piano player? Although not entirely impossible, it probably stands to reason that there aren't very many aroiund. What say you? Just some random thoughts on a cold winter morning...

    I have seen a one arm piano player. All things are possible under the right circumstances.

    There is an important piece in the classical rep for a piano concerto for the left hand only. It was written for a famous pianist who lost his right arm during WWI.

    I think the pianist involved was German, the composer French.
