's review

it was amazing

An excellent read, with a CD packed full of world-class chamber music by some of my favourite artists. If you're interested in the "behind-the-scenes" world of classical music, or are just plain fascinated by musical child prodigies like Glenn Gould, the brilliant Ms. Parr's book is a must read.

Laura I think I lost out, not having the physical version of the book, and being able to hear the CD.

Sarah McNally The CD really adds a lot to the book. I recommend giving it a listen, if at all possible. There's a fantastic youtube clip of Parr playing with the TSO — Beethoven's "Choral Fantasy." It's especially cool because, as she pointed out in the book, this was the last time she would ever play as a soloist (because of her stage anxiety).

Laura I will check it out. Thanks
