See and experience for yourself how chance intervenes in this rare complete performance of Luciano Berio’s 14-part »Sequenza«: John Cage, the so-called father of aleatory music, will determine by means of the score of his »Variations IV« which piece is performed where in the hall. A croupier at a roulette table in the empty Main Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus will determine with a roll of the ball the time, sequence and simultaneity of the performances. After months of painstaking and meticulous preparation,14 young students of Vienna’s Music and Arts University will perform the Italian composer’s »multi-voiced solos« dedicated to famous soloists of the 20th century. An extraordinary evening that will demonstrate why we talk of »playing« music ...
