Linda Rez interviewed me for her show, Minstrel and Muse. We talked about my book, GRAND OBSESSION, and how a piano gets a soul, and a lot more of interest! Please tune in online at 11 a.m. mountain time:

Perri:

I read your book and enjoyed it very much. I am new to the piano (two years now) and have developed quite an obsession myself. Haven't found my dream piano yet but I am looking and am only beginning to really hear the piano anyway.

I won't be able to tune in tomorrow (work work work!) but I would like to hear the show if it is recorded. I'll check the link to see if I can follow up later.

Best wishes,

Hi Perri,

Just listened to and enjoyed your interview very much. I read your book about a year ago (recommended here on PianoWorld)-the first download to my Kindle library. smile LIke many others, I restarted piano a little bit over a year ago at age 43 after having lessons as a kid 30 years ago. So many things about your experience resonated with what I was going through.. on a different level to be sure, that It was just the right book to read and experience as I started on my own journey. It was great to hear a little bit too today about where you are at now in your own piano progress as a continuing student.

Inspirational. Thank you so much.

Hi Pique,

You already know I am a fan. You have always spoken well so I didn't expect anything but a fine interview. Brava!

How are the sales of Grand Obsession holding up? I would imagine well, because it is still a new product being released in new languages, isn't it?

Give us the low down, Pique!

Hello, Pique,

I enjoyed your radio interview! It was informative and interesting; same as with the book, I’m sure.

I didn’t know you were a journalist. Have you ever appeared on any of the major TV news networks/media outlets? I’m somewhat of a TV news junky.

Anyway, I wish you continued success with your book, and Marlene! smile

Rick

I have to add one thing.

I am a tiny bit disappointed that the picture of you and I together is no longer there on your website. frown

I get it, it is old news, and my current picture is older and fatter, but still... wink

GRAND OBSESSION was released in German this past november to rave reviews and quickly went into second and third printings there. It is coming out in French in april.

@Perri, if only it were available in dutch wink Just kidding, prefer to read it in english, I don't like details to get "lost in translation"

BTW. I love your recording of the Chopin Waltz on your homepage.

Perri, just listened to your radio interview, and read your book about one year ago. I burned my Yamaha G7 and took up the lute. Only kidding! You wrote me a kind message that stated everyone has different needs and ideas of their pianos. Glad to have heard you today, and best to you! Bill
