Piano tracks


Sir, – Several recent correspondents have been challenged by bus queues, Luas lines and the odd train experience. For me, there is a beacon of light shining in Pearse Station in Dublin. While waiting for a southbound Dart, I have listened and been entertained by near-virtuoso performances on the piano.

With its psychedelic colours, the instrument attracts professional and amateur players of all ages.

From jazz to classical music to soundtracks from the movies, the mood of the travelling public is transformed.

Whoever thought of placing an upright piano and keeping it tuned beside a station platform should take a bow! – Yours, etc,


Dún Laoghaire,

Co Dublin.
