"Sight reading" refers to a skill musicians hold that allows them to read a musical composition and instantly hear music--but in this novel it also refers to the lives of three classically trained musicians who find their lives changed through their meetings and encounters over the years. Here the changing tempos and moods of music are compared to life as talented, close friends interact and are changed by their twenty-year association. Shifting viewpoints and voices bring these changes to life with the thread of music always joining stories and protagonists in a lovely story recommended for any fiction reader.
