Carol Montparker has enjoyed a rewarding dual career as a pianist and author. Having trained as a classical pianist, Montparker made her concert debut at Manhattan's Carnegie Hall in Thereafter, she performed solo recitals at live venues throughout the United States and on radio programs. She moved into writing when she discovered that the stress of a performer's lifestyle did not accord her the time to enjoy her many other interests or the companionship of her family.
She has served as a senior editor of Clavier magazine and has contributed to numerous popular and specialist periodicals. Montparker's books seek to communicate a musician's love for her instrument, and how that love of one art form translates into a joy for painting, gardening, and teaching. In A Pianist's Landscape and The Blue Piano and Other Stories, the artist expands upon her journalistic pieces to create a picture of one musician's life and lifestyle choices. Montparker is candid about the pleasures and pains of recital performance, and she also reveals herself to be a capable interviewer in her essays on other musicians she has met.
One of the chief delights of this book is that it is so engagingly well written. The Blue Piano takes its title from the color of a piano Montparker once refused to play in a solo concert.
