Düsseldorf Festival - 11.000 Saiten

Messe Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf
September 15, 2024 4:00 PM

It all started with a dream: 50 pianos as one instrument. Georg Friedrich Haas has created a unique sound experience that resounds like a natural wind from the depths of the universe. With 11.000 Saiten, Georg Friedrich Haas explores a microtonal space for 50 pianists on just as many pianos and an ensemble.

Premiered at the Bolzano Festival Bozen (August 2023) and performed for the first time in its original version in the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus during the Wien Modern Festival, this unique concert installation is now coming to Germany for the first time.
