I have. I can't say we have played it very much! We also have the one with the rebuilt piano (I think)

does it build to a crescendo then?

Does he indeed! Must be well fit then! Wish my dh would give me a crescendo every now and then!

Nope, as far as I remember it's just the sound of opening the piano, a long silence and then the sound of closing the piano. I don't think we have it any more, but we do have other CDs with silent tracks, and it can work really well.

I reckon that's where Song Catchers (on Cbeebies) got their idea from - listening to the sounds around and making music from it
