»it is important that you also hear images and perceive sculptures with your ear.« joseph beuys 1986d

the musical aspect is omnipresent in the work of joseph beuys. the instrument piano, for example, combines sculpture and sound. beuys had developed the idea of the earth piano for the fluxus festival, but never realized it. it remained a concept. the ensemble crush takes this up and prescribes it as the program for a performance concert. an acoustic-performative experience based on works from the year of beuys' birth as well as the work by peter gahn composed especially for this project. the work »four6« by john cage - to whom beuys said he felt particularly close - forms the counterpart to the first half of the program. the grand piano will be played by four musicians simultaneously and thus expanded.
the ensemble crush, founded in 2013, plays contemporary music and works closely with composers. its particular interest lies in unconventional programming and breaking up the usual - also spatial - concert situation.

ensemble crush: pia marei hauser (flute), andrei simion (violoncello), slavi grigorov (accordion), marin petrov (piano)
