Why did the piano run away? (If that’s what happened.)
Thanks to Brian in STL for also sending this in, and also providing this other pianistic scene:
Brian’s remarks on this one were “I’m not entirely sure what’s going on here, and there are no comments on the strip to help. Amos often serves as her page-turner, but seems to have flung the music book across the room. Did he have some sort of convulsion or horrible miscalculation?”
Hey, maybe the piano remembers this or similar scenes, and has fled once he sees who the approaching performer is…
Thursday’s strip looks like it might be intended as something of a follow-up.
Now that she’s caught up with it, she prepares to attack … and plays a single note, as quietly as possible — marked 5p and with the visual correlative of the miniaturized staff.
