Street Pianos Return To London

Challenging the vuvuzela as the sound of summer 2010, "Play Me, I'm Yours", the artwork in which pianos are plonked onto the streets for any ol' punter to play, has returned to London for a second year. As of yesterday, 21 pianos have been dropped off at various locations around town, mostly within the Square Mile, where they'll remain until July 10th. If you want to have a play, all you need to go is perch yourself on the stool and plunk away. In a stunt reminiscent of the Telectroscope, the piano on Millennium Bridge will be linked with one in New York from July 1st - 4th; it's believed that a pair of classically trained pianists will perform a transatlantic Chopsticks duet.
