About

After World War I the well-known pianist Paul Wittgenstein, who lost his right arm in action, commissioned a series of concertos from a number of composers, amongst them the famous concerto for the left hand by Ravel.

Two others, although rarely played, are twentieth-century masterpieces: a surprising (and exuberant!) concerto by Korngold (1923) and Diversions by Britten (1940), a piece comprising a theme with 11 variations, full of life and lyricism.
