Left, alone - the new piano concerto by Hans Abrahamsen
8th January 2016
The soloist will be Alexandre Tharaud, whom the piece was written for. He is an absolutely unique artist character who has established his profile as a repertoire seeker and an authentic performer.
Left, alone was initiated by the WDR and co-comissioned by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. All of them will have performed the work by the end of the year.
“The title Left, alone contains all kinds of references, not only to the obvious fact that the left hand is playing alone.” (Hans Abrahamsen)
