Nicholas McCarthy piano

A unique musical experience inspired by Maurice Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, commissioned by infamous pianist Paul Wittgenstein after he lost his right arm during the First World War. Concerto is a deconstructed and re-orchestrated exploration of the legacy of war and the healing power of music to overcome tragedy. 

Created by award-winning theatre maker Michael Pinchbeck, devised with emerging artists Ryan O’Shea and Katt Perry, and featuring world-renowned concert pianist Nicholas McCarthy. Commissioned by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, Attenborough Arts Centre and Nottingham Lakeside Arts. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England through the National Lottery.

“Michael Pinchbeck is a terrific theatre maker” The Guardian
