Krystal Tuned Concerto

Master Pianists play Natural Vibrations

Powered by Jochem Jansen

Our fascination

 

The idea to bring two master pianists together playing one of the most
fascinating pieces of Dutch musical composition, on two Erard grand pianos
in a new musical tuning… means we cannot withstand waiting, super
curious as we are about what this experience will give.

 

The concert is organized by TenClub, dedicated to Curiosity and the Self,
which is You in case you had any questions. The grand pianos are tuned in
the 12-based Krystal tuning giving space to completely new musical and
thus bodily experiences.

 

Krystal Tuning

 

The krystal tuning was developed in the last 10 years and gives access to a
totally new musical universe. It no longer has Pythagoras’ Comma as a base
– being the ratio between twelve fifths with a 3:2 frequency, and seven
octaves with a frequency ratio of 1:2. To achieve the full spectrum of the
tuning the two grand pianos will have different tuning aligned with each
other to complete the spectrum of vibrations

"Harpists spend 90 percent of their lives tuning their harps and 10 percent playing out of tune."
