During a performance the grand pianos are positioned in a cross shape formation. The pianists use specific signs to communicate and therefore it’s necessary their faces are turned towards each other. Owing to the substantial liberty of action every performance will be a musical adventure for both the pianists as the audience.

Lemniscaat - Rondane quartet

Lemniscaat was completed in 1983 and is the first composition for four keyboard instruments that Simeon ten Holt wrote after Canto Ostinato. The composer calls the refrain an invocation which is characterized by very long sounding chords contrasting with the restless movement of the sixteenth notes in the intervening episodes. Now and again impressive melodies develop from the minimalist structures. Simeon ten Holt once compared Lemniscaat to a toccata because of its capricious nature and virtuosity.
