I personally LOVE this! I love the way how you managed to not only capture the main focus of this picture which is the piano but you also showed the rest of the room such as the background so that there is more to see but your eyes instantly zoom onto the piano.
I have not seen anything like this before and I really love it. It is beautiful and so different from what you originally see so it is unique, beautiful and you clearly have skill in your photography. Also it has an amazing impact to the viewer because of all those aspects of the shot.
Really well done.

Hello again, *illpadrino.

Another title that really suits the photo again. "Symphony of Silence" is a good title to a photo of an abandoned grand hotel which have hosted before events such as weddings and grand events. The wallpaper is teared apart, the floor with dust, a piano totally disused, windows and bricks destroyed, and a grand ceiling and chandelier dead and no longer living.
Still, the sun shines in the photo, and the windows are the source of light in this once grand hotel which was a beautiful point in old decades. Have yet not been abandoned the this would be in this kind of shape. Good photo, and I hope you capture more photos of abandoned places. I'll give you five stars.
