Pianos in Concert

Two aspects make this concert, which takes place concurrently in three exhibition rooms, a central event of the "Cage Night": firstly, it features the work that gave the project its name and which, with its compositional randomness, is, so to speak, a key to understanding Cage's work (likewise "4'33''", which Mike Svoboda will perform). Secondly listeners can experience an instrument which Cage is regarded as having invented: the prepared piano. The Duo d’Accord are playing on four different pianos, two of them "prepared".
