Pianos, so many pianos.
‘Three Days Pianos’ was a festival at
The Jerusalem Theater.
For three days and late nights the theater was alive,
as people even played piano in the lobby.
Art work lined many walls,
much of it on a piano theme,
with some works overhead.
The opening event,
in the Henry Crown Hall,
with international pianists,
began with a brilliant 40 minute duet,
with Duo Lutoslawski each at a piano,
and ended with four stools,
for four in a humorous finale.
Many performances were held in the various halls
of the Jerusalem Theater beginning on Wednesday.
Late into the night this lobby filled
with sounds of beautiful music
and people of all ages.
The festival ended with Kabbalat Shabat,
on Friday afternoon,
with artistic director Michael Wolpe.
So many pianos this week in Jerusalem,
Bach, Chopin, Mozart, Schubert, the list goes on,
watch and listen for even more next year.
