Eugenia ZukermanRather than following a linear timeline, this natural history winds in and out of centuries and genres, introducing a stream of personalities, facts and ideas. Appearing like pop-up delights within the text are boxes containing related information and short essays written by world-famous pianists from Alfred Brendel to Billy Taylor. The cumulative result is like listening to a fascinating raconteur who informs and entertains and really knows his stuff…Passion and unstoppable enthusiasm are palpable throughout this beautifully written and illustrated book.
