Piotr Anderszewski might be one of the most revered pianists of his generation, but he's also one of the most impulsive.

In 1990, at age 21, the young Pole entered the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition. He was nearly finished with his semi-final performance when he quit playing — just walked off the stage. He felt he wasn't good enough to continue. It was a gutsy move that actually helped launch his career.

"Today we are celebrating Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday with Bach on the Plaza."

Violinist Aimee Lopez says it's part of the worldwide Bach in the Subway celebration, but since we don't have a subway,  about 15 San Antonio Symphony musicians and students played Monday morning on Main Plaza.

Bob Gleason and his friend Paul Reece had heard about it and walked over.

A Canadian musical troupe is coming to the Majestic Theatre to perform and the way they make their music is unusual.
