The Lost Chord: February 21 - What's Left?

paul_wittgenstein_left_hand_piano.jpg

Concert pianist Paul Wittgenstein lost his right arm during the First World War.  Rather than abandon his career, he commissioned works for the left hand from some of the great composers of his day, including Benjamin Britten, Sergei Prokofiev, Richard Strauss, and of course Maurice Ravel.  Listen in for two of his lesser-known commissions: the Piano Concerto in C-sharp minor, by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and “Klaviermusik mit Orchester,” by Paul Hindemith.  The latter was rediscovered in a Pennsylvania farmhouse in 2002.  Give a hand for Paul Wittgenstein, this Sunday at 10 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
