A conductor will become an assassin. An audience will become and orchestra. And a pianist will play.
A unique musical experience inspired by Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, featuring
world-renowned concert pianist Nicholas McCarthy.
Infamous pianist Paul Wittgenstein commissioned Ravel to write him a concerto after he lost his right arm
during the First World War. At the same moment, assassin Gavrilo Princip was in prison, his withered arm
tied up with piano wire. Unravelling narratives such as these surround this music’s composition – and
together they weave a true story that spans 100 years.
Michael Pinchbeck’s Concerto is a deconstructed exploration of the legacy of war and the healing power
