The Siberian pianist Svetlana Ponomareva was passing through London’s biggest hub on her way to Omsk when she saw a piano that said ‘play me’.
‘Anything Valentina Lisitsa can do in railway stations, I can do in airports,’ she thought. So she played it. And filmed. And sent to Slipped Disc. Of course.
Someone asked if she was Daniel Barenboim.
