The notion of parallel universes, which Stanley Kubrick, recently Christopher Nolan and many other directors have attempted to capture in film, has long been a source of fascination for the composer and conductor Péter Eötvös as well. Now Eötvös has created a large-scale work titled "Multiversum" which sees him, for the first time, musically plumbing the depths of a theme whose attraction lies partly in the unexplored at a time when everything appears to be explainable. The protagonists in Eötvös’ concept are the Philharmonie's Klais organ and a Hammond organ played by two of the world's greatest organists: Iveta Apkalna and László Fassang. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam evokes the "universe" or "universes". To set the mood for the concert, Kubrick's classic "2001: A Space Odyssey" will be screened in the Filmforum.
