Jeremy Denk is a pianist and so intimately familiar with harmony, melody, and rhythm that it even seeps into his voice with a tone and expressiveness that is musical. He's reflective and wonderfully droll in this memoir in the broadest sense of coming of age--becoming a person, a pianist, and a teacher, along with getting comfortable in his romantic life. He often seems amused at his own luck and talent at the piano and with his various piano teachers, as well as by the terror and confusion he felt just learning about life. Denk offers insights on music, composers, technique, and expression, and this audiobook jumps a few octaves as a listening experience with its piano snippets interspersed throughout to illustrate those insights.
