Hearing the music of Siberia
On February 17, 2020 In Travel books
The Lost Pianos of Siberia (Transworld, £18.99), a debut in which Sophy Roberts explores “a world of snow, exile and music”, was reviewed in The Daily Telegraph at the weekend by Julian Evans. After a faltering start, he says, it’s a book in which Roberts “movingly demonstrates how a remote and limitless wilderness was transformed, for her, into the most intense, musical, intimately human space imaginable”.
