Hauschka is the alias of Düsseldorf-based Volker Bertelmann, who plays what he calls the “prepared piano”.

He modifies the instrument by placing within it an assortment of material–gaffer tape, tin foil, felt wedges, bottle tops, ping pong balls… The resulting sounds have been described by MOJO magazine as “nothing short of astonishing… a triumph”.

The haunting quality of Bertelmann’s compositions are enhanced in this performance by ghost-like films projected onto the piano and pianist by Luxembourg film maker Jeff Desom, who has made two promo videos for Hauschka including the award-winning Morgenrot. Ghost Piano has been performed only a few times, and this is its Luxembourg debut. Two shows are on at the Philharmonie’s Espace Decouverte, at 7 and 9 p.m. with a chance to talk with Hauschka and Jeff at a Baloise sponsored “backstage” event at 10 p.m.
