Concert August 8, 2010 - John Schneider, microtonal guitars
Concert | August 8, 2010, 15.00 hours | Pianola Museum, Westerstraat 106, Amsterdam
John Schneider plays microtonal music
John is a American microtonal guitarist and a pioneer of refretted fingerboards, and worked with many of the great American composers whose music uses just tunings. He is the founder of the original MicroFest in the United States and wrote an important article on Just Intonation and Guitar in the Accoustic Guitar magazine in the early 90′s. This concert includes works specially written for him by Lou Harrison, Terry Riley, and Ben Johnston.
John is briefly passing though Amsterdam on his way to Berlin, and the Huygens-Fokker Foundation has made possible this rare opportunity to hear him live.
Do please come and bring all your friends!
