Piano Man story has a happy ending

Kudos to On an Overgrown Path for spotting this one: it looks as though the ‘Piano man’ story (previously | previously) has reached a happy ending – after breaking his silence he has been identified by the German foreign ministry, and was flown home over the weekend. For confidentiality reasons his name has not been released by the hospital where he was looked after. So now, the only mystery remaining is whether he actually could play the piano as a virtuoso, as claimed when he was first found, or whether he was “only able to play one note continuously” as reported in some papers. I suspect this will ultimately remain as much a mystery as his name; it was still a good story though.
