Two ships and one hundred ships’ sirens concerto Siren Chants by Christof Schlaeger will be previewed in Wrocław on October 4, 2014. On the one hand, the work will refer to the musical tradition of Wrocław. On the other, it will be a thoroughly contemporary, spectacular and original work due to extremely unusual types of instruments and the use of the modern musical language.

The concerto will be performed by phenomenal, on the world scale, instruments-objects – tuned with air pressure ships. The location of the event at the divergence of the Odra River, between Cathedral Island, Sand Island (Piotr Włostowiec Boulevard), and Priest Dunikowski Boulevard, will make it possible to enjoy that specific ships dance from three places. At the same time, it is one of the most favourite walking tours of tourists and Wrocławians, which shows the panorama of Wrocław by the Odra River.
