Piano, Toy Piano, Kalimba & Gadgets

A diverse and amusing piano program that begins with the grand piano and goes off into a fantastical direction with it's tiny counterpoint; the toy piano, the exotic African thumb piano as well as a gauntlet of accompanying gadgets. Roses, Chinese pipa-techniques used on the piano strings, flying balloons, a music box, a megaphone, bike bell, texts spoken, sung and chanted: the program is a compilation of miniature commissions and pre-written works by Manfred Stahnke, Karlheinz Essl, Moritz Eggert, Matthias Kaul, Annea Lockwood, Tan Dun, Annie Gosfield, Jerome Kitzke, Louis Andriesson, Georg Hajdu, Sascha Lino Lemke and Peter Hamel.
