The Warsaw Concerto is a one movement piano concerto, composed as an important element for the 1941 film Dangerous Moonlight, and written by British composer, Richard Addinsell. The film's producers wanted a piano work in the style of Sergei Rachmaninov's 'Rhapsody and Variations on the Theme of Paganinni, or his 2nd or 3rd piano concerto, but were not able to get the rights for these compositions for their film, or able to get Rachmaninov himself to write a new piece. The first performance was on 26th June 1941 when the film premiered in the United Kingdom. Willy Hautvast has made a masterful arrangement for Harmony Orchestra.
