Narrator Daniel Henning portrays musical prodigy Gleb Yanovsky from early in his career to middle age with a genuine-sounding awe and pleasure. Gleb, a classical guitarist, allows biographer Sergei Nesterov to trace his roots from Ukraine to celebrated stages worldwide as he faces personal disappointments and, ultimately, the loss of his gift from Parkinson's disease. Vodolazkin explores the meaning of success and highlights the importance of family in this heartfelt and moving novel. Henning infuses the final chapters with wonder and joy as Gleb helps a teen prodigy hone her talent. BRISBANE dramatizes the theme of unfulfilled dreams as it asks questions about art, life, and the path to eternity. R.O. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
