”Piano to Zanskar” is an award-winning British documentary film which tells the story of Desmond Gentle, a 65-year-old piano tuner from London, who, facing his future in retirement, “sitting in deck chairs and eating lemon drizzle cake”, decides instead to take on the most challenging and perilous delivery of his four decade career: transporting a 100-year-old upright piano from bustling London to the remote heart of the Indian Himalayas. Desmond’s ambitious destination is a primary school in Lingshed, Zanskar. At 14,000 feet above sea level, it is one of the most isolated settlements in the world. If successful, the expedition will be the highest piano delivery in history. More importantly, it will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy.
