Instrumental. James Rhodes in conversation with Mariana H

Querétaro 2017, 

The pianist James Rhodes (United Kingdom) has found in music not only a profession but also a kind of safe space in which to develop his creativity and deal with the terrible events which, from age six, marked his life, when a school teacher began to sexually abuse him. In his extraordinary autobiography, Instrumental (2015), Rhodes tells how a relationship with music allowed him to keep on living and become a well-known pianist.
