schema:description""Beginning with Pachmann's childhood in Odessa, Mitchell follows the process by which the youngest of thirteen children evolved into one of the finest - and most colorful - artists in the history of the piano, one who was able to fill London's Albert Hall for a recital. Particular emphasis is placed on the two principal relationships of Pachmann's life: with the pianist Maggie Okey, to whom he was married for a decade, and with Francesco Pallottelli, the waiter-turned-impresario under whose influence he eventually settled in Fascist-era Italy."--BOOK JACKET."@en
