Clear skies ring with the honk of wild geese
On deserted hills, leaves whirl in the wind
Twilight on a smoky village road
Carrying an empty begging bowl and walking home alone

From jazz pianist Fred Hersch:

Mini Concert Every Day

I hope everybody is safe and healthy and will remain that way. This is an unprecedented challenge to everyone on the planet and we all need resilience and resourcefulness going forward.

Starting this Sunday, every day at 1pm EST
I will do a live mini concert of piano music from my home.

You can see and hear the concert here:

Wishing you all strength and much love,

Fred
