‘Four hands on one piano. A musical tribute to the imagination: a world of fairytales, fantasy and children’s games…’

Magical Garden, the newest release of piano duo Amacord, is a tribute to the imagination. ”A world of fairytales, fantasy and children’s games…”. They play with four hands on one piano in a spectacle of intersecting lines and dynamics. During two consecutive evenings, a magical landscape will form the cocoon of an enchanting piano duo concert by world-renowned Duo Amacord. Music from the fin de siècle, light, bubbly and simply delightful.

The duo, consisting of Maarten den Hengst and Ivana Alkovic, performs in a special landscape installation formed around them, designed and created by TU Delft students during a two-day workshop. Diff erent materials, methods of processing, interaction between sound, movement and lighting were explored during the workshop in collaboration with the pianists, a team from the Science Centre and ACTlab.

About Maarten den Hengst & Ivana Alkovic
​In the center of Vienna, next to the busy Naschmarkt, lies café Amacord. A refuge for artists, politicians, free spirits and merchants. A place to debate, to retreat, fall in love or just to be… In the beating heart of the city that acts as the bridge between East and West, the Old Europe and the New, the city of Beethoven and Schubert, Schiele and Klimt, Serbian pianist Ivana Alkovic and Dutch pianist Maarten den Hengst met each other. Their search for high art, conversation and friendship in a strange city brought them together in Amacord, where, apart from their love for music, the love for each other began to grow. This led to the birth of piano duo “Amacord”. Four hands on one piano, a spectacle of intersecting lines and dynamics.

In collaboration with X TU Delft and Crossing Parallels.
