Having lost his right arm during World War I, the Austrian pianist Paul Wittgenstein (brother of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein) commissioned the work from Maurice Ravel.

Wittgenstein also performed the premiere with Robert Heger and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra on January 5, 1932.

This (very short) excerpt from the cadenza, recorded in Paris 1933, shows some of Wittgenstein's piano technique.
