I think this subject deserves a its own thread. I love the piano as an instrument and enjoy when it is the center or an important part of a book or a movie.
I am currently reading Grand Obsession by Perri Knize and it is a very nice reading (I am now about 50% on it)
I also recently enjoyed the movie The Pianist directed by Roman Polanski, with Adrien Brody as the protagonist.
I have another book in the waiting queue to be read, The Piano Shop on the Left Bank, by Thad Carthart. And also want to watch The Piano directed by Jane Champion and with music of Michael Nyman.
Let's talk piano in books and films!
