I am trying recall details of a performance review I read many years ago. I believe it was in the Singapore Times or some such Asian daily.
'Twas about a pianist who in the course of trying to perform a classical piece, ran into problems when the humidity more or less sabotaged his performance. In frustration, I recall, he systematically dismantled the piano.

Now either I may have misremembered (surprise, surprise) this article, or it may have been an early example of urban legend. But my request here is if anyone else recalls this and can perhaps provide some pointers to the facts.

Thanks.

Doug
