Seating for Emanuel Ax recital extremely limited

Tickets are almost gone for tonight's piano recital by the wonderful Emanuel Ax. We are certainly happy to have full house, but it is no less than Mr. Ax deserves.

The Piano Staircase from The Fun Theory

There is more than a bit of irony in this message indirectly promoting walking coming to us via an auto manufacturer, but this is, as it claims, a fun video. With a point. And it involves a keyboard.
And there are others. And so we shill.

And, yes, I am adding this to the "Piano Music" section of Aisle Be Seeing You.

Viral marketers, we salute you!
