Max Hoehn, Sonata for Broken Fingers - A Chamber Opera
CBSO Centre, Birmingham, B1 2LF

In the last days of Stalin’s reign, a mysterious phone call from the Kremlin launches a desperate and seemingly hopeless search for a missing pianist… British composer Joe Cutler and Swiss librettist Max Hoehn’s new opera explores the meaning of music in a terrifying world. Inspired by the remarkable life of Maria Yudina, the virtuoso pianist and survivor of Stalin’s purges, this dark absurdist thriller is brought to life by Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and a fine cast of soloists.

Conceived as an intimate sound experience, the piece is influenced by the radio operas of the past and the recent flourishing of audio drama during the pandemic. Hear the world premiere performance at the CBSO Centre this summer and stay tuned for a future album release by Birmingham Record Company.
