Haas, Hailun, and 4400 Hammers
The Fondazione Busoni – Gustav Mahler Stiftung, supported by the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung commissioned Georg Friedrich Haas to write a new work for 50 micro-tonally tuned pianos and orchestra. The world premiere will take place in August 2021 within the Busoni Piano Competition, performed by the orchestra of the Gustav Mahler Academy. Fondazione Busoni – Gustav Mahler Stiftung is supported by Hailun Piano, one of the largest piano manufacturers in the east. We talked to the company’s artistic representative, Sisi Ye, about the project.
