Alleged crimes: music at all hours and noise pollution.

Sonia B, a person of Puigcerda, Girona (Spain) accused the pianist Laia M of playing piano up to eight hours and five days a week between October 2003 and September 2007 stressing her.

The pianist (professional now but then, an 18 years old student) denies the facts, but the prosecution and private prosecution request a sentence of seven years and a half in prison. Six years for a crime against noise pollution environment, and a year and a half for another crime of mental injuries against her neighbor Sonia B, who had to move to another town with her family and currently, she has developed a phobia against pianos.

The trial began yesterday, on Monday 18 of November 2013.

Of course, the defense attorney asked full acquittal.

We will see. For the moment, no comments, but maybe today we shouldn’t say our motto. You know: ‘Art is everywhere and up to you.’

“Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it.” By Tom Lehrer.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
