There's a subway station in Stockholm that's making it much more interesting to take the steps instead of the escalator.
Volkswagen came up with the idea in an attempt to get more people to exercise. The subway stairs have been transformed into a giant, functioning piano keyboard, like the one made famous by Tom Hanks in the movied BIG.
Check it out for yourself here.
A full subway recital by some nimble musician can't be far behind. Stay tuned.

Cecilia Bartoli has a new disc coming out, and NPR is offering listeners a chance to listen, and to download a track: the aria "Ombra mai fu," also known as""Handel's Largo."
(This disc is meant to be noticeable not just musically, but also visually--check out the cover art.)
