A musician set the world record for the highest ever classical music concert after she played a grand piano up a 5,000m Himalayan mountain pass. Evelina De Lain, 41, performed Chopin’s Nocturnes No 2 in E flat major and No 20 in C sharp minor during the 90 minute performance.
She also played his “Raindrop” Prelude Op 28 No 15, as well as compositions from her solo album Soul Journey.
The pianist was joined by a team who helped to drive and carry the Challen piano to the Singela Pass in the Himalayas, India.
Concert in the Clouds raised money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and the piano was donated to a local school. Stormzy on his piano lesson with Paul McCartney: ‘It was incredible’ Ms De Lain lost the ability to move her hands properly 14 years ago due to a repetitive strain injury.
After undertaking an intensive course of therapy, she eventually regained most of the use of her hands.
