Pope’s Summer Piano Tuned

The Holy Father won’t be playing two-handed till his cast is removed in three weeks, but the piano in his Castel Gandolfo apartment is ready for him.

Some people are already talking about what sort of music Pope Benedict might enjoy one-handed. What would you suggest? Most of us won’t ever play the Wittgenstein repertoire with orchestras, but I’m sure some of us have continued to play music through injury.

If you were advising the pope on musical enjoyment, what would you recommend that he play? Emphasis on solo piano, I suppose.

    He’s into Mozart, so obviously that, and maybe some Beethoven if he has the chops. I’ve been looking into the works of CPE Bach, myself. They seem like something he’d enjoy. Schubert, Brahms, all well-known for a reason.
