A Sombre Moment, in Tribute to Poland
Thursday 15 April 2010

Before the opening work in the Philadelphia Orchestra's concert at Carnegie Hall on Tuesday night, the pianist Piotr Anderszewski spoke to the audience about the plane crash in Russia on Saturday that took the lives of Lech Kaczynski, the president of Poland, and dozens of the country's military and political leaders. Born in Warsaw to Polish-Hungarian parents, Mr. Anderszewski spoke of how wrenching this tragedy has been for his home country. With Charles Dutoit, the Philadelphia Orchestra's chief conductor, looking on, Mr. Anderszewski asked for a moment of silence and dedicated the first piece on the program to those who were lost.
