Bury Free Press Newspaper Features the Piano Tuner’s Book
The ‘Bury Free Newspaper’ has featured an article about Peter Tryon’s book,’ The Steinway That Wouldn’t Budge (Confessions of a Piano Turner)’.
This book is based on the author’s autobiography about the tales of a life spent travelling around rural East Anglia while tuning pianos. It also includes the author’s story of life, how he entered adulthood with an interest in music and more specifically in mechanics.
He was always curious about instruments and fired early imaginations that gave rise to his lifelong association with the world of Pianos. The author defines his 35 years of experience as a piano tuner. His social commentary on different characters in the book is full of humour which feels very pleasant to read.
The author narrates the story with the touch of unspoiled beauty and charm of East Anglia which acts as a perfect backdrop in the story and all of these things contribute to make it a perfect book to read.
