Holland Festival – 11.000 Saiten

Gashouder, Amsterdam
June 22, 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.

After stops at the Bolzano Festival Bolzano (world premiere, August 2023), in the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus at the Wien Modern Festival (for the first time in the original version with ensemble, November 2023) and at the Prague Spring Festival (June 2024), the unique concert installation is now coming to Amsterdam.
