The Constant Muse

Music has always played a natural and important part in my life. I never received a musical education, even though my mother played the piano. Perhaps this was because our family pianos were victims to political upheavals: the instrument my mother played on was lost to Revolution; the piano we had in Gomel, on which my sister learned to play, was, much like the city of Gomel, destroyed by the war.
