Gabriela Montero had an hour to spare at at Connolly Station in Dublin, so she sat down and played Mozart.
Did anyone pay attention?
Here’s what she writes:
I had never DARED to play on a public piano because I was too embarrassed to do so!
But, since I was only able to practice a third of my repertoire this morning at 8 am before I flew to Ireland, I decided to go for it and practice at Connolly Train Station in Dublin. I had an hour to spare.
My hands were freezing, I felt ridiculous (totally exposed!) but I got through some of the Mozart Sonata, Kinderszenen, and a sweet old Irish lady shyly approached me to thank me.
