Celebrating his 74th birthday in August 2005 Sri Chinmoy surprised the audience in Queens, New York with a variety of unbelievable performances. One such celebration was the playing of 74 pianos in one afternoon. For this occasion, one of his New York students organized three trucks full of pianos of all shapes, brands and sizes. After a short meditation Sri Chinmoy started with the first piano and then, row by row, played instrument in turn. The maestro offered delicate soft melodies as well as powerful and impressive improvisations. The video takes you through this piano marathon. Length: 1:40 h.
