And Haley Zandstra knows this, which is why she has chosen her family’s exquisite grand piano for her object.

Just look how shiny it is.

The sounds that pour forth from this piano are beyond words and certainly beyond the audio quality of this video. However, it is my hope that some of these notes will transcend the tinniness and reach from her soul to yours.

Thank you Haley. You play beautifully.

After that, there is nothing left to say.



P.S. If you would like to learn more about French composer and pianist Yann Tiersen, it might be worthwhile to check out his myspace or his new album Dust Lane. You may recognize some of his pieces from the endearing French Film Amelie.
