A unique musical experience inspired by Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand.
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, the assassin that triggered that conflict, Gavrilo Princip, was kept in shackles in prison in Terezin, his withered arm tied up with piano wire, fading away into the snow.
Unravelling narratives surround this piece of music – together they weave a true story that spans 100 years of history. Experience a deconstructed and re-orchestrated exploration of the legacy of war and the healing power of music.
