Saas-Fee. Stefan Aaron did a big thing. He performed his new song “Doing the Undoable” at the top of the Alphubel, the 4206 metre (13800 ft) high mountain in the Swiss Alps. With this world premiere, Stefan Aaron did set a new world record as the one who played piano and sang on the highest altitude. The event started on Saturday 20 August at ten o’clock at the sports field of Saas-Fee in Switzerland. “The piano is 250 kilo heavy and was fixed by belts to the helicopter”, says Stefan. On board was also a camera team that shot a video of the mountain gig.
How did the celeb piano player who performed for example for the German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich or tennis legend Boris Becker hit the idea to play piano on a peak of the Alps? “I wanted to do something crazy. Something that was never done before.” Because there are 18 peaks above four thousand metre, Stefan chose the Saas-Fee region in the Swiss canton Wallis as the start of his spectacular Orange Piano Tour. His concept: “I want to put my orange piano, whose colour fits to the positive energy of my songs, at unusual places and see what happens.” The Alphubel was picked as “stage” for Stefan’s Guinness world record, because the peak of the mountain giant is “broader”. Stefan Aaron praises the “perfect cooperation” with the staff of Saas-Fee/Saastal Tourism: “They did a fantastic job.”
