Infamous pianist Paul Wittgenstein commissioned Ravel to write him a concerto after he lost is right arm during the First World War.
Michael Pinchbeck's Concerto is a deconstructed and re-orchestrated exploration of the legacy of war and the healing power of music to overcome tragedy.
Musical manuscript will fall from the sky like snow on a battlefield. Doctors will persuade shell-shocked soldiers to play again. An apple crate will become a piano keyboard. Two conductors will become assassins. An audience will become an orchestra. And a pianist will play.
Concerto was commissioned by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, Attenborough Arts Centre and Nottingham Lakeside Arts.
Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
