Huge music stands at Querfurt Castle

One of three huge music stands at Querfurt Castle in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany

Three music stands (Notenständer) with a height of four metres reflect that Querfurt Castle (Burg Querfurt) houses a music school. Artist Ingo Güttler created these pieces of contemporary art. They play music and form a sound installation. The music stands are removable. So they disappear while the castle is used for festivals or as a set for movies.
