China - Piano solos can be inspiring. Piano duets can be whimsical. But, you might think that more than 600 pianists banging out a tune by Schubert [his Marche Militaire in D Major] could be a bit overwhelming.
But, the Association of Mature American Citizens reports that Franz, himself, would have approved when a melodious mob – 639 pianists to be precise – took to the stage and surrounding streets in a town in China with their grand pianos. They did it for the love of the classics and to get themselves into the Guinness Book of World Records.
