PSO favorite in all-Beethoven

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Pianist Michael Gurt and the Pennsylvania Sinfonia Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director Allan Birney, perform an all-Beethoven concert, 7:30 p.m. April 20, First Presbyterian Church, Cedar Crest and Tilghman streets, Allentown.

As Lehigh Valley audiences have gotten to know Gurt during his long association with the Sinfonia, they have come to love not only his insightful playing and whirlwind encores, but also his larger-than-life personality, Louisiana accent and the time he takes to meet and chat with any listeners, especially students.

Old Men

That clockwise beast called the hour

Weighed heavy on the backs of the old men

Who went to cemeteries to visit their history in stone

And fought to hold onto fleeting recollections

Of dances in the Summer evening

Painting a house some 'eggshell' shade of white

A game of chess on a stone patio whose perimeter was a balustrade in vibrant bloom

In time, on practiced schedules, they would leave

And come to learn that though the fire had died

There still existed warmth.

My Dad

It was summer

in Puerto Rico

we would eat

ice cream

and ride

motorcycles

around

the park

In the yard

we had chickens

gallinas

and roosters

we told jokes

on the court

we played

basketball

And the best part

me and my dad

we went to the beach

la playa

to talk and

play games

he was so

funny
