Orchestra of Square Chapel - 2019
A unique musical experience inspired by Ravel’s Piano Concerto for 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. Michael Pinchbeck’s Concerto is a deconstructed re-orchestrated exploration of the legacy of war and the healing power of music that marks the centenary of World War One. Musical manuscript will fall from the sky like snow on a battlefield. A conductor will become an assassin. An audience will become an orchestra. And a pianist will play.
