Abstract:

These intensely personal and perceptive essays explore the author's life as a pianist - practicing, performing, teaching, and writing - but they could be the thoughts and reflections of any artist. They recount the challenges, rewards, disappointments, and joys of a career as a musician, but since Carol Montparker is also an astute musical journalist, her noteworthy interviews and conversations with other musicians emphasize the universality of her own perceptions.
