“Get your hands off of my country”

27.04.09, 13:44
Mial racje czy sie osmieszyl? O jakie rece i jaki kraj mu chodzilo?
A moze nie moze przebaczyc tego Steinway-a po 9/11.
Pytanie tylko po co przyjezdza do USA? Pecunia non olet?

"“Get your hands off of my country,” he said. He also made reference to the
U.S. military detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "


"Zimerman has had problems in the United States in recent years. He travels
with his own Steinway piano, which he has altered himself. But shortly after
9/11, the instrument was confiscated at JFK Airport when he landed in New York
to give a recital at Carnegie Hall. Thinking the glue smelled funny, the TSA
decided to take no chances and destroyed the instrument. Since then he has
shipped his pianos in parts, which he reassembles by hand after he lands. He
also drives the truck himself when he carries his instrument from city to city
over land, as he did after playing a recital in Berkeley on Friday."

      "Genialny pianista.

      Dziwaczny, niezreczny i niezrozumialy koncertowy-politykier .
      Niewiele mozna dodac, zamiast dumy zostala przykrosc i wstyd za zachowanie
      jeszcze jednego Polaka za granica.

      O co mu chodzilo? Czyje rece precz i od ktorego kraju?

      Moze to wszystko tylko zmeczenie, stress, potkniecie, nieporozumienie, ‘lost in
      translation,’ ktore minie, zginie i przepadnie jak mara nieczysta.

      Ma prawo sie wypowiedziec, ma prawo powiedziec wszystko, ale czy to byla
      wypowiedz, ktora komukolwiek, czemukolwiek sie przysluzyla? Wyglada raczej na
      wybuch osobistej frustracji, zlosci, niewyrazne mamrotanie urazonego,
      przerosnietego, wyobcowanego ego.

      Z braku checi dalszego wlasnego komentarza posluze sie cytatami innych, ktore
      oddaja tez moje odczucia:

      “Tania ta “odwaga” wiadomo ze w USA kazdy moze plesc co mu slina na jezyk
      przyniesie. A moze by tak w Moskwie na koncercie powiedzial pare “cieplych “slow
      o Rosji lub Putinie ?”

      wyrwane z kontekstu:
      “sprawach wojskowości jest naiwnym pacyfistą, nie przymierzając jak te 15 letnie
      dzieci ”

      “Kazdy ma prawo nie zgadzac sie z polityka zagraniczna USA. Zimerman sprawil ze
      Polacy zamieszkali w USA poczuli wstyd.”"

      He's protesting Guantanamo Bay and US military policy now? After a new President
      has vowed to close the facility and 7 years after our forays overseas? He's a
      bit Charlie-come-lately, especially if he's spent the last 7 years touring the
      US (as you report) raising his profile and accepting payment for his concerts. I
      guess he has no problem accepting American dollars from his US fans.

      Frankly, I'm as incensed at our previous government as he apparently is, but
      he's come to our country as a guest, so it seems the height of rudeness to
      badmouth his hosts while happily profiting from it. I would be less skeptical if
      he had made his comments from Poland. Or making them right before a concert
      (after people have paid for the tickets). So forgive me if I think his 'outrage'
      sounds a bit disingenuous.

      If it wasn't for our military, Mr. Zimerman, your country would still be under
      the iron fist of the Soviet Union.

      He said the USA "has far finer things to export than the military, and he
      thanked those who support democracy"

      Maybe he should thank the US military for bringing democracy to Poland. Without
      our military (and Ronald Reagan) he'd still be living behind the Iron Curtain
      and probably be making much less money with his talent.
