Mr Mergler's Gift
The girl sits at the piano and plays the opening bar of Fur Elise. Daniel Mergler has heard the Beethoven bagatelle countless times over the decades, but this is different. He listens with surprise, and delight lights up the old man's eyes. Mr Mergler's Gift is their remarkable story-a moving account of a student and her mentor, and a lyrical homage to the transcendent power of music.
