Daniel Hope set for 'buy a piece of the piece' fundraiser / theStrad

The organisers of a charity concert in Heidelberg, Germany, are taking an unusual approach to ticket sales to the 23 November Stadthalle Heidelberg concert featuring violinist Daniel Hope with the ensemble L'Arte del Mondo under Werner Ehrhardt in Vivaldi's Four Seasons, followed by Max Richter's 2012 reinterpretation of the piece, ‘Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi – The Four Seasons'.   The intention is for both pieces to be played in their entirety but this fundraiser makes you part of the composition. Each concert ticket sold will not only grant its buyer concert admittance but also a bar of music from the piece. Unsold tickets will result in bars of music going unplayed. As a fundraiser, one can buy every single seat and bar that is played in the evening. 

According to the charity, the National Centre for Tumour Diseases, the sale of each bar will benefit cancer research projects at the centre's Heidelberg base. Photo: Thomas Entzeroth    READ theStrad ARTICLE
