Martha Argerich's Atelier at the Railway Station

We do not always have the opportunity to perform in a professional concert hall or practice on a concert piano in a professional studio also called the atelier. Nowadays, the fashionable venues for organizing concerts are the railway stations. Recently, in one of the cities in Poland, even a festival of classical music was organized at the railway station.
It turns out that the idea is not new.
