The programme is presented in three rooms of the museum.
John Cage had the idea of ignoring the boundaries between the arts and expressing himself on the same themes both in music and in the visual arts. Continuing this idea, Susanne Kessel integrates sound sculptures by Peter Hölscher into her performance of the "Concert for piano and orchestra" by John Cage. In parallel, the Jewish-Palestinian piano duo Amal will play Russian classics alternating with a new Israeli and a new Palestinian composition, thus overcoming national borders. In the third hall, finally, the Leipzig String Quartet play Beethoven's "Great Fugue" in direct confrontation with Cage's compositions "Four" and "Music for Five". Before and during the "Cage Night" films by and about John Cage will be shown in the Rotunda of the Kunstmuseum.
