Cassandra Campbell brings the practiced touch of a seasoned performer to her narration of this story in which a piano figures heavily. Katya Dmitrievna and Clara Lundy begin their lives a generation and a continent apart, but an old Blüthner upright piano connects them to each other like a piano string connects hammer and key. Campbell fluidly advances their separate stories, moving deftly between the accents and attitudes of Soviet Russia and current-day California. Campbell's performance lifts up this story, even--or especially--when the truths Clara begins to discover about her piano (a gift from her father before his death) and about herself seem set to bury her under their weight.
