Highest piano concert in Himalayan
Earlier this month, Evelina De Lain set a world record for the highest classical concert when she played a grand piano at an altitude of 5,000 meters in the Himalayas. She performed Chopin’s Nocturnes No 2 in E
flat major and No 20 in C sharp minor during the 90-minute high-altitude performance. The 41-year-old musician lost the ability to move her hands properly 14 years ago as a result of repetitive strain injury. However, after an intensive therapy, she has regained much of her former dexterity.
