Summary
  • In the tradition of Elena Ferrante--a breathtaking European novel of love, loss, and the mysterious connection between four people, a valuable violin, and their passion for music
  • Ten years after the death of charismatic conductor Karl T., who emigrated to Barcelona from behind the Iron Curtain, his son, two rival violinists, and Karl's former maid are brought together. The love of music they share is tempered by ambition, envy, and greed, which crescendo on the evening of a memorial concert in Berlin. Who is the rightful owner of the conductor's three-hundred-year-old violin-- and how far will people go to seek revenge?
