Part of my master plan for new house is to turn one of the bedrooms into a music room. To this end the piano was moved upstairs yesterday. Always a ticky thing and a three man job, but it was accomplished with only one extra chip to the bannisters and the piano is now perched on a piece of hard board to spread the load on the century old floorboards.
I have heard the sound of a piano being dropped down stairs and it's not pretty. Then there was that piano that got dropped from a first or was it second floor window at the London College of Music when it was in Great Marlboro' St........ A Steinway I believe...
And what, pray tell, did Radio 3 choose to play to accompany this feat?
Why Beethoven's 'Tempest' Piano Sonata, of course.
