Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli


My father's favorite pianist. We listened to him all through our child hood.

If my father had not been a poet he would have been a pianist or an opera singer.
There are times when as an artist we truly are the instrument of God. Michelangeli was that instrument.
Classical music was in the background always as David and I grew up on the lower east side with all the noise of the city. Inside the romantic sounds surrounding our walls gave us the feeling of a safe haven. CW.
