Handel hits the road

Another happy burst of entrepreneurship — Daria van den Bercken hitched her piano to a truck, and played Handel on the streets of Amsterdam.

And with such happy results. People smiled, ran after her, took her photo, clearly enjoying it all. Daria plays wonderfully, which of course doesn’t hurt. But it’s her happy spirit that — if you ask me — really makes this go. Not that it would work if the music and her playing weren’t so terrific, but that’s not enough to make a hit in public. People have to like you. 

And Daria — whom I had the pleasure of meeting briefly in Amsterdam last year — is irresistible.
