Product Description

A journey into the mind of concert pianist Paul Wittgenstein, whose right arm was amputated during WWI.

Inspired by the biography of Austrian concert pianist Paul Wittgenstein, Concerto takes readers through a dreamlike and poetic universe deep into the mind of the tortured, melancholy, complex man upon whom only music seems to have a calming effect.

Wounded during the First World War, Paul Wittgenstein had his right arm amputated but nevertheless pursued his dream to be a successful concert pianist. The fortune his father left him allowed Wittgenstein to commission works playable with only the left hand from the greatest composers of the day which is how the legendary pianist Maurice Ravel, at Wittgenstein’s request, came to compose his famous Concerto for the Left Hand.
