From E! Online:


Also making the scene in Toronto:

Viggo Mortensen made a good impression on music lovers. In townfor the launch of Good, a story of the moral compromises made by friends in Nazi Germany, Mortensen tinkled away on the piano in the Sutton Place Hotel for a mini-concert. "I just made it up," he said to the delighted crowd.

Like in his music CD Time Wait... which is very nice. Very Happy

Next time I'm in a hotel lobby I'll be checking out the pianos. bounce

Photo Mike Cassese:



From the Toronto Star:
As an oblivious world walked by - including hordes of media types attending TIFF - actor Viggo Mortensen sat openly in the lobby of the Sutton Place, gently tickling the ivories of a baby grand piano.

Dressed casually in a red t-shirt bearing a crest of Hungary and armed with a thermos, Mortenson, co-star of the soon-to-be-released western Appaloosa, remained serene as a publicist tried to shoo away an alert Reuters photographer.

Following his impromptu recital, the soft-spoken taciturn actor said, "I just made it up."

Asked to comment on whether the piano was properly tuned, he replied: "More or less."

His response to the question, "I didn't know you played:"

"I didn't either," followed by a loud, horsy laugh.

From an article here about TIFF:

http://www.boston.com/ae/movies/articles/2008/09/15/in_the_end_loneliness_becomes_a_festival_reality/

By Wesley Morris
Globe Staff / September 15, 2008


To some extent, I'm describing the loneliness that settles in after the excitement leaves, how revelers mutate into fallen confetti. When I got here earlier in the week, I was doing some rubbernecking at the festival's hotel headquarters, where someone in a room just off the crowded lobby was playing a piano. The song was rather indifferently performed, but the sadness in it lingered. I went about my business thinking the pianist should take an antidepressant - and some lessons. It was Viggo Mortensen. But that's life here in fits and starts - even Viggo gets the blues.
