Condolesszza Rice

Yesterday during her visit to Buckingham Palace Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State gave a piano recital for the Queen.

Dr Rice performed music by Johannes Brahms accompanied on violin by Louise Shackleton, the wife of David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary. Three members of the London Symphony Orchestra offered backing to the high-profile duo.

Afterwards, the Queen presented Dr Rice with a recording of the performance as a gift. How nice for the Queen was that!

How nice for the Queen that America’s most senior diplomat a classically trained pianist was able to play at the palace. She was making her final trip to Britain before President-elect Barack Obama takes office next month. It remains to be seen what tunes will his administration be playing?
