  1. The piano project really made me appreciate the random possibilities of life . Like it is when you are very young, and every day is a surprise.

    I came home from work, to the sound of Rachmaninov drifting across Brandon Hill. On my next encounters I met a young Portuguese girl, who could not play "traditionally" but who told me that anything on the piano sounds good, and then a Spanish girl playing Debussy.

    Oddly enough although the Spanish girl she was not speaking Spanish as she played, within five minutes there was a group of six people around the piano all of whom spoke Spanish (not Spanish) and most of us stayed for less than five minutes. Serendipity?

    I am not a superstitious person, but these experiences have refreshed my faith in spiritual things that come through music, and so I should recommend you to the Catalan composer Mompou, who was played at an encore on the Proms that same week.

    Award To This Piano: Most Illusive
    NB: We could not find this piano. We think it is behind the shop shutters that were firmly closed at the time of our visit. Sadly no photo and only piano I could not sign!
