February 7 , 2016, 11.00 hours | Johannes Keller, 31-tone organ

Johannes Keller is a harpsichordist and specialist in rare meantone music with more than the usual 12 tones per octave. He will give a unique concert where he will play the 31-tone organ as well as his own 'chromatic-enharmonic' harpsichord. The program includes several composers such as Georg Muffat, Ascanio Mayone and Nicola Vicentino, who took effort in the 16th and 17th century in extending the meantone temperament in order to be able to modulate into remote keys which were out of reach in the common tuning. In several works Johannes Keller will be accompanied by violinist Eva Saladin. Tickets can be ordered at the box office of the Muziekgebouw. Read more about this concert here.
