When Anita Sullivan started a second career as a piano tuner decades ago, she was immediately puzzled by the piano’s complicated tuning system. Surprised to learn that her new profession was not only technically complex, but in fact required artistic judgments, she set herself to describing the tuning system in a way that would make sense to ordinary listeners, rather than piano technicians alone. This exceptional book is the result. The book was NOT written to artists who might want a good but interesting perspective on this historical piece of the journey that music has taken.
