Michael Pinchbeck - Concerto

  • Peggy's Skylight 1 George Street Nottingham, England, NG1 United Kingdom (map)

A special performance from one of UKYA’s first alumni. 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. 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.
