Luc, the atelier's master, proves an excellent guide to the history of this most gloriously impractical of instruments. A bewildering variety passes through his restorer's hands: delicate ancient pianofortes, one perhaps the onetime possession of Beethoven. Great hulking beasts of thunderous voice. And the modest piano "with the heart of a lion" that was to become Thad's own.
What emerges is a warm and intuitive portrait of the secret Paris - one closed to all but a knowing few. The Piano Shop on the Left Bank is the perfect audiobook for music lovers or for anyone who longs to recapture a lost passion.

lovely story about the joy of pianos
a story of a neighborhood in France with an inconspicuous piano shop. the story weaves us smoothly through the different types of pianos and their various qualities. he also hits on our relationship of playing and the music as well as understanding how they work. I highly recommend this book for its lovely storytelling .
