Keith Porter-Snell’s performing career was put on hold for some seventeen years by the onset of focal dystonia in his right hand. He is now a great champion of music written for the left hand alone, following in the steps of the likes of Leopold Godowsky and Paul Wittgenstein. In recital the issue of one hand vs two swiftly becomes irrelevant, such are the captivating qualities of Keith’s musicianship and virtuosity.
