That nobody has started a thread about the pianos at the closing ceremonies of the Olympics.

Maybe it's just that I am Canadian?

Interesting that you should mention this. I once played a command performance for King Vladimir Vassily Gonereo Trstian Mangegi Fortunov, Baron of Sabbat, Baron of Haasen, Baron of Krozi.

I performed only Latverian music. The recital was 4'33" in length.
