Small Hall | In the spirit of Huygens


The famous physicist Christiaan Huygens invented the 31-tone tuning in 1691 and published about it in his 'Lettre touchant le cycle harmonique'. But what was the purpose of his invention? And what impact could this have on the future of music as his invention would have been spread more widely?
The Fokker organ will be played by the young and talented organist Martin Havinga, who will take the listener on a search for music which in theory might have sounded during the past centuries. Tickets can be ordered at the box office of the Muziekgebouw. Read more about this concert.
