'A Romance on Three Legs' is the fondly amusing title of this delightful book - which tells the touching story of Glenn Gould - that unique musical genius - his unique piano tuners (one in particular) and the pianos (one in particular) that they loved.
Not only is the story most movingly written and performed, but it offers unexpectedly profound and fascinating information about the art and practice of piano tuning itself.
A truly wonderful book that musicians and audiences alike would be sure to enjoy.
I loved this book for many reasons. The story is engaging and even gripping. The narration is not only clear, but read in a way that enhances the message and makes me want to hear more. In a few places there may be a little more detail than required, but I would find it difficult or recommend cutting it. Overall, a highly engaging and informative account of Glenn Gould and be quest for the perfect piano. I highly recommend it.
Romance is a wonderful book for pianists who stand in awe of the true artist. What is especially fulfilling is the education on the corresponding artistry of the professional technician whose work I have always (shame on me) taken for granted.
