Music, Late and Soon (Paperback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

After thirty-five years as an "on-again, off-again, uncoached closet pianist," poet and writer Robyn Sarah picked up the phone one day and called her old piano teacher, whom she had last seen in her early twenties. Music, Late and Soon is the story of Sarah's return to study piano with the mentor of her youth, as well as a reflection on her previously unexamined musical past: a decade spent at Quebec's Conservatoire de Musique, studying clarinet, dreaming of a career as an orchestral musician, but already a writer at heart. Both introspective and speculative, this two-tiered musical autobiography tracks the author's long-ago defection from a musical career path and her late return to serious practice and tells the story of a relationship with an extraordinary teacher remembered and renewed.
