How can you have 6 Steinway Piano's on one Stage? By Geniusofdespair

I went to the Adrienne Arsht Center last night because I never saw 6 piano players playing at once. I didn't take a video of the performance, just the guys putting the pianos on stage.

That was my piano bucket list.

Thanks Arsht Center for a great Concert. The Mehmari for two Pianos, the Mozart for 3 pianos and the Liszt for 6 pianos were the best. The one piano didn't cut it for me.  Now I am jaded. I won't be able to get to the Knight Concert Hall anymore once that stupid Miami Herald property is developed by Genting. I parked a block away. The $4 dollars cookies, they weren't so good, try the brownie. It has to be better. The funny thing: The first violinist came on and plays a piano key, he looked at the audience as if to say "Which piano should I use?"  Everyone chuckled, even me, who knows beans about classical music protocol.

Here is what 6 pianos looked like last night on stage. Before they started playing
The 6 pianists after they played. Christoper O'Riley, Andre Mehmari, Ciro Fodere, Roberto Berrocal, Marina Radiushina and Elisha Abas (none of them looked liked the photos in the program so I may be wrong).

I would have thought the pianos would be put out before the seating began.

They had one with one piano, one with two, one with three and the last with 6. It was more dramatic the way they did it and it hardly took any time.
