Heroic World-Class Pianist Shocks Concert Hall: To Boycott US Militarism

"Poland's Krystian Zimerman, widely regarded as one of the finest pianists in the world, created a furor Sunday night in his debut at Walt Disney Concert Hall when he announced this would be his last performance in America because of the nation's military policies..."

Wow, read this wonderful news story. This fine artist is doing what every ethical public figure should be doing, but so few have his courage.

Disappointing

how many of the comments below the article were not supporting him. It takes a total foreigner to come in and tell the truth to stir us up. He should have received a standing ovation.

There are too many people

living in complete, self destructive denial. If it's not classified as a form of insanity it should be.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Zimerman plays Schubert Impromptu Op. 90 No. 2

Over a year ago but its still good.

Right :)

And my family has been listening to Mr. Zimmerman ever since.

I am Polish born...

and I will always be a Polish freedom fighter.

We all have our roles in this.

Krystian stood tall for freedom and everyone of you must do the same.

Right on!

I would have applauded him.

If any other country had military bases in 130 countries we would call it occupation.

Agreed, Pawnstorm12

As would I.

But that man should play the tyrant over God, and find Him a better man than himself, is astonishing drama indeed!~~D. Sayers

The comments on that article

The comments on that article make the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It's bad enough having to fight ones own government; fighting the flatulent sheep that blindly follow it is almost unendurable.

So an American and a Pollack walk into a concert hall...

and the Pollack walks out with dignity.

it is only a matter of time

it is only a matter of time before more and more people follow his lead. If only more would. the sad thing...not many will, if they do, we won't hear about it..and the people don't understand to begin with..
marching out...I bet it burnt their ears.
The comments are quite crazy and really uninformed. Did you read the discussion about ww2 and that poland was sold to russia? well, you can't bad mouth the us...cause people started calling him a revisionist...
the true history of the world is the one you won't read in history books...

Try this out...

Sound familiar?:

Zimerman has had problems in Germany in recent years. He travels with his own Steinway piano, which he has altered himself. But shortly after the invasion of Poland, the instrument was confiscated at Templehof Airport when he landed in Berlin to give a recital at the Berlin Konzerthaus. Thinking the glue smelled funny, the Gestapo decided to take no chances and destroyed the instrument. Since then he has shipped his pianos in parts, which he reassembles by hand after he lands. He also drives the truck himself when he carries his instrument from city to city over land, as he did after playing a recital in Dresden on Friday.

Reading this one first

It sounded like Nazis being vindictive to a Jew and exercising one notch of restraint on that famous Nazi, line 'em up and take 'em out methodology. Thanks for the perspective.

Defend Liberty!

TSA destroyed his piano before.

..the TSA destroyed his piano..o m g ..People walked out..guess they do not understand what we have become to many educated people in foreign countries..

People actually walked out?

Or did they kind of lurch-shuffle? 'Cause they sound like ZOMBIES.

Great observation.

I demand video - I bet on the lurch-shuffle.

Well put.
