Evelina De Lain, 41, is the musician who set the world record for the highest-ever classical music concert. She played a grand piano 5,000 meters high in the Himalayas.
De Lain lost the ability to move her hands properly 14 years ago due to a repetitive strain injury. After undertaking an intensive course of therapy, she eventually regained most of the use of her hands.
De Lain has created her very own mixed style of classical and jazz music. She performed Chopin's Nocturnes No. 2 in E flat major and No. 20 in C sharp minor during the 90-minute performance. She also played his Raindrop Prelude Op 28 No. 15, as well as compositions from her solo album Soul Journey.
She said, "It was one of the hardest things I've ever done but I'm not one to shy away from a challenge, and it was such an honour to be asked to play my music in the clouds. It was incredibly cold but actually the cold was not as problematic as the wind. It felt like it was penetrating my bones."
