White Buffalo (English)

Gregory Haimovsky


White Buffalo is a collection of short lyrical stories centered around the aesthetics in music and the arts.

The stories are neither amorphic nor theoretical but rather anchored in the lives of each individual protagonist. Among the titles: The Poet Speaks, Song for a Dream, Istukans, Caruso’s Soul, Vasya and Orna, Oberon’s Horn, Mystery of the House, Syrinx, and The Wonder of Opus 101.

One of the most captivating stories describes the resistance of a piano to its master after it felt abused, misused and betrayed.

Haimovsky’s enchanting collection of memorable stories are a pleasure to read and reread.

Gregory Haimovsky was a professor of piano, chamber music, and aesthetics of performance at New York University, and founded the NYU Chamber Music Society.
