About

'Concert for a Deaf Soul' is a theatrical take on the secretive life of French composer Maurice Ravel. A harmonious collaboration between Halle Puppet Theatre and pianist Ragna Schirmer has produced an "evening of empathy, filled with love for Ravel and his music". Scenes from the life of Ravel alternate and merge with some of his most impressive pieces for piano. Music, imagination, puppets and actors conflate into a touching and poetic experience.

Pianist Ragna Schirmer is one of the most distinguished artists of the younger generation. She has been awarded a total of 15 first prizes, becoming the only person to win the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig twice.

Ragna Schirmer has performed with the Münchner Philharmoniker under Zubin Mehta, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig under Herbert Blomstedt, Orchestre National de France under Kurt Masur and other orchestras. Her CDs have received numerous awards and excellent reviews throughout Europe (Diapason, Le Monde de la Musique, Gramophone, FonoForum, Crescendo).
