Staff Reviews


Pianos? Siberia? Really? Yes, really - a search for a good piano for a talented acquaintance in Mongolia. How to ship a piano from the US to Mongolia is not as easy as it sounds (hmmm) so let's find one closer - maybe in Siberia! And so we are taken all through the empty, huge, fascinating place, looking for those pianos that had been abandoned over the years - from Catherine the Great's penal colonies to the Kamchatka Peninsula to the border of the Arctic Circle. Did I learn much about pianos? Not really, but what a journey. Did I learn much about Siberia? Yes, some, and it is worth the trip. Fun, informative, and delightful - it is mad what we humans get up to, and grand that there are writers that tell us about it.
