CONCERTO

This show has ended.

Michael Pinchbeck

Inspired by the composition of Piano Concerto for the left hand by Maurice Ravel and its commission by Paul Wittgenstein, who lost his right arm fighting in World War One. Concerto explores how Ravel was lost in a forest for 10 days outside Verdun in 1914, inspiring him to write his most celebrated works.

The audience become the orchestra. A conductor becomes an assassin. A pianist plays a piece of music that tells a story about disability, music, war and 100 years of history.

Commissioned by Attenborough Arts Centre (Leicester), Lakeside Arts Centre (Nottingham) and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre.  Supported using public funding by Arts Council England
