A tale near relatively few spoken language but weighed down of meaning, The Music of Life is the natural life of a disappointed instrumentalist. The chronicle is told by a conversationalist who meets the performing artist in a tank engine facility in all probability in Siberia and in a flurry. The storyteller in the core of masses stranded travelers looks for a stool once the uninjured of emollient auditory communication beckons him to a forsaken bit of the public transport station wherever old fixtures is keep. There he meets this player and tells us his content as coincidences bring down them together, on and off, individual nowadays.

During the Stalin Era, Alexei Berg, the pianist, escapes from Moscow of late before his prototypal unexclusive reading. As he does so, he finds out that his parents are arrested, shortly to be sent to pariah. After pretty a few incidents wherever individuals cast a shadow on him and he narrowly escapes from harm, he finds his way to a piece of land where Russians fought Germans in World War II. He dons the personality of a pulseless Russian combatant who looks look-alike him and manages to argue in the war to following get the manipulator of a as a whole whose life he saves during the war.

While working for the general, the player waterfall for the general's youthful female offspring who proves to be a callous and dismissive woman. When Alexei's curtain falls, he is sent to Siberia for various labor-hardened time of life. This sad story does not end near a disaster, but it is dour throughout resembling the effort of the elder Russian masters, Chekhov and Dostoyevski.
