The autobiography of Evelyn Glennie, the world's first full-time virtuoso percussionist who, since the age of 12, has been profoundly deaf. It describes her upbringing on a remote Scottish farm, her childhood battles against being sent to a school for the deaf and the initial reluctance of the Royal Academy of Music even to interview her. After three outstanding years as a student, culminating in being awarded the prestigious Shell/LSO Gold Medal for Percussion and Piano, we are taken to her triumphant entry on to the professional music stage, worldwide tours, the excitement of recording her first album, and the honour of a solo concert and the 1989 Prom Season.
