Trevor Woodison is touring South West pubs trying to find which of them still has a playable piano.

He then offers to tune the instrument and for a small fee provide an evening's entertainment.

So far he has catalogued more than 80 neglected pianos in his mission to bring back the traditional knees up.

Ever since Romain Thiery stumbled upon an abandoned piano in a castle in 2009, the French photographer – a pianist himself – has travelled all over Europe in search of forgotten pianos, giving them a new lease of life through his images.

So far, he has captured 124 pianos in countries including Spain, Germany and Romania, as well as in remoter places such as the Chernobyl exclusion zone in Ukraine, for his ongoing series Requiem Pour Pianos.

Ever since Romain Thiery stumbled upon an abandoned piano in a castle in 2009, the French photographer – a pianist himself – has travelled all over Europe in search of forgotten pianos, giving them a new lease of life through his images.

So far, he has captured 124 pianos in countries including Spain, Germany and Romania, as well as in remoter places such as the Chernobyl exclusion zone in Ukraine, for his ongoing series Requiem Pour Pianos.

First he looked for pianos via Google Earth, focusing on castles and cultural buildings; now people contact him directly.

The images, which are not staged, show “the power of music and instruments, even in an environment that no longer attracts our attention”, explains Thiery. “This is what I want to do, to remember these forgotten pianos one last time, before time makes them disappear.”

To date, nobody has found out who abandoned the beautiful piano – but it seems to be bringing people a whole load of musical joy...

An abandoned piano has been spotted on top of a cliff in Sydney Harbour – and ever since it was spotted, locals can’t seem to stop playing it.

In the video, we see several groups of people approach the instrument to demonstrate their musical skills.
