Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.: 1962, the Soviet Union. Eight-year-old Katya is bequeathed a Blüthner piano, built at the turn of the century in Germany, on which she discovers everything that she herself can do with music and what music, in turn, does for her. Years later, married, she emigrates from Russia to America; her piano is lost in the shuffle. 2012, Bakersfield, California. Auto mechanic Clara Lundy's search for an apartment is complicated by the gift her parents gave her shortly before they died in a fire: a Blüthner upright she has never learned to play. When her hand gets broken while the piano's being moved, she decides to sell it. -- adapted from jacket
