Joseph Haydn gave his 82nd Symphony the nickname “The Bear” because in the fourth movement you can hear the melody of a bear dance. Everyone around the world knows the first four notes of Beethoven's “Destiny Symphony”, often without knowing who composed it. His music inspires everyone. Percussion and ping-pong play a key role in the work of the American Andy Akiho. In addition to a wide variety of percussion instruments, this contemporary work also brings a table tennis table as an instrument to the stage and turns ping-pong players into percussionists.
