Pianist Krystian Zimerman to boycott US

Krystian Zimerman“Get your hands off my country” said Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman at the Walt Disney Concert Hall on April 26, announcing that he would not be returning to the US because he could no longer play in a country whose military wants to control the world. When several dozen audience members rose and walked out, Zimerman responded “some people, when they hear the word military, start marching.”
