U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was part of a piano quintet that performed for Queen Elizabeth II Monday night at Buckingham Palace, the Associated Press reports.


       Rice played Brahms’ Op. 34 with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband’s wife, Louise, on violin, and three members of the London Symphony Orchestra. The queen gave Rice an audio recording of the performance as a gift.      

       Rice, a classically trained pianist, has said in past interviews that she would like to someday play at the palace.  Her wish came true during her final trip to Britain before President-elect Barack Obama takes office next month.


       On Tuesday, she gave a farewell speech to NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.
