They found another piano but it wasn't able to be on the stage so it was going to be difficult to see the conductor. When she went to it she noticed it was a mess, the keyboard had large gaps between some of the keys among other things. And when she started to play it was quite out of tune. She managed to get through the piece and there was great applause. While telling the story there were fragments of the concert played and of course they played the crash several times.
Crashendo was the headline in one of the articles about the concert.
