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". There are also a toy piano and an electric piano. Before and during the "Cage Night" films by and about John Cage will be shown in the Rotunda of the Kunstmuseum.
The "Cage Night" is supported by the
