Three days out from the start of the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival, many publications have already featured the extraordinary event. The Los Angeles Times published a Q&A with Festival artistic director Ralph Kirshbaum in a story titled “Why are 102 cellos in Disney Hall? Ralph Kirshbaum is happy to tell you.” And he would be happy to tell you—in person at one of the many events unfolding in the coming days.
The Downtown News included the Festival in its list of events not to miss. “Many of the festivities center around USC’s Bovard Auditorium, but Downtown proper gets its due with four performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall from Friday-Sunday, May 13-May 15.”
