A saga with comparatively few spoken language but flooded of meaning, The Music of Life is the being of a disappointed instrumentalist. The sketch is told by a raconteur who meets the player in a drill station in all probability in Siberia and in a snow. The verbaliser in the in-between of abundant marooned travelers looks for a bench once the wholesome of like velvet music beckons him to a forsaken cut of the train installation where on earth old equipment is keep. There he meets this musician and tells us his narrative as coincidences convey them together, on and off, respective nowadays.

During the Stalin Era, Alexei Berg, the pianist, escapes from Moscow honorable up to that time his early state-supported recital. As he does so, he finds out that his parents are arrested, immediately to be conveyed to outsider. After somewhat a few incidents where relations stow him and he narrowly escapes from harm, he finds his way to a theatre of war where on earth Russians fought Germans in World War II. He dons the personal identity of a exanimate Russian soldier who looks suchlike him and manages to scrap in the war to latter go the driver of a at large whose duration he saves during the war.

While functional for the general, the performing artist water for the general's new girl who proves to be a pitiless and empty-headed fille. When Alexei's shroud falls, he is conveyed to Siberia for several labor-hardened eld. This tragical fable does not end with a disaster, but it is dour for the duration of resembling the hard work of the aged Russian masters, Chekhov and Dostoyevski.

Music of a Life, although just 109 pages, is an heroic in essence, since it is more or less love, loss, music, war, and semipolitical disorder.
