A conductor will become an assassin, an audience will become an orchestra and a pianist will play.
A unique musical experience inspired by Ravel’s Piano Concerto Tor The Left Hand featuring world renowned 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. 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 into the snow. Unravelling narratives surround this piece of music and together they weave a true story that spans 100 years.
