An event with

Sophy Roberts with Catherine Fairweather

The Lost Pianos of Siberia

Monday 24th February 2020 at 7:00pm

Daunt Books Marylebone

Tickets £10.00

Description

Siberia’s story is traditionally one of exiles, penal colonies and unmarked graves but dotted throughout this remote land are pianos – grand instruments created during the boom years of the nineteenth century, and humble, Soviet-made uprights that found their way into equally modest homes. Sophy Roberts goes in search of them and as well as a remarkable travel account of Russia’s wild east, she tells the story of how, ever since entering Russian culture under the influence of Catherine the Great, piano music has run through the country like blood.

Travel writer and former editor at Harper’s Bazaar Catherine Fairweather will be chatting to Sophy about the book.

‘An extraordinary, cadenced journey into music, exile and landscape.’ Edmund de Waal
