Nicholas McCarthy is a professional pianist who graduated from the Royal College of Music in London in 2012. That might not be so remarkable, until you take into account that he was born with only one hand. He is the first one-handed pianist to graduate from the esteemed music school, and one of very few one-handed professional pianists in the world. Enjoy this beautiful rendition of Prelude and Nocturne OP9 by Alexander Scriabin.
