On April 5th at 7pm, Le Poisson Rouge will host a concert in tribute to Paul Wittgenstein, a pianist that has been badly wounded during WWI and commissioned pieces to play with only one hand afterwards.

In homage to Paul Wittgenstein—the concert pianist who lost an arm in World War I and commissioned piano concerti for the left hand alone— musicians will perform Sonate pour violon et piano (1917) by Debussy, D’un matin de printemps by Lili Boulanger, and Suite pour 2 violons, violoncelle et piano op.23, a piece written by Korngold and commissioned by Paul Wittgenstein.
Musicians: Célimene Daudet, piano, Amanda Favier and Leslie Boulin Raulet, violins, and Louis Rodde, cello.

This event is presented in partnership with the Bureau Export New York and NoMadMusic.

Date: April 5, 2017
Time: Doors at 6pm, Show at 7pm
Place: Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street
