I have to say it was a very pleasant Sunday: a composer friend bought the old (1836) village store in Passins, about 50km east of Lyon. The big downstairs room that used to be the shop now houses a Bosendorfer, on which he gives lessons and occasionally invites friends to perform in front of 30 or so locals and friends from the city. After, picnic in the courtyard... and from time to time someone would wander inside to play something.
It does make me want to get to Passins.

Oooh, a Bösendorfer. I've had my hands on one of the 90+ key models. Big, deep, rich sound!

I think this was a more standard model... it wasn't a full concert-hall sized beast.

Fascinating though: the concert was opened by a young (teens) student who played Claire de Lune, and I was gritting my teeth a little because something about the room was creating a harsh resonance somewhere around 500Hz.

Then Cynthia took over, and despite playing much louder, the harshness almost disappeared: the skill of listening and adapting to the sound of the room.
