Siberia's story is traditionally one of exiles, penal colonies, and unmarked graves. Yet there is another aspect to it: Dotted throughout this remote land are pianos—grand instruments created during the boom years of the 19th century, as well as humble, Soviet-made uprights that found their way into equally modest homes. Taking a three-year journey throughout the region, Sophy Roberts profiles the governors, adventurers, and exiles who used music to keep their hopes and memories alive.
