The Concertante for Piano (Left Hand) and Orchestra was written at Storrington in 1948 for Harriet Cohen who had injured her right hand is not a successful work, and unfortunately for Bax's reputation had the misfortune of being widely played for several years. Bax eschews any local Romanian colour. Most of the poems in The Bard of the Dimbovitza are designated as 'Luteplayer songs' or 'Spinning songs'.

Nevertheless, Left Hand Concertante, patently Bax's worst extended work was widely heard. The first movement is laboured although there are some attractive ideas. But the theme of the finale, a rondo, is tawdry. His heart was not in the work. When I wrote my book on Bax I had only heard one performance of the Left Hand Concertante, that given by Douglas Fox at Oxford on a very snowy night in 1969. In both the orchestra could not really cope.
