RAVEL Piano Concerto for the Left Hand
PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 5
Ravel’s innovative Concerto for the Left Hand was commissioned by a pianist who lost his right arm in World War 1. P’ng Tean Hwa performs this unusual favourite full of giant leaps and jazzy flair. The excitement builds with Mussorgsky’s ominous Night on a Bald Mountain, and culminates with the thrilling Prokofiev 5.
