Summary
A woman from New Orleans steals a violin from a ghost and becomes the musician she always wanted, finding herself acclaimed on two continents. Part fantasy, part reality
Summary
This tale of a tormented musical genius moves across time and place, from 19th-century New Orleans to the Rio de Janeiro of the late 1990s. It traces three charismatic figures, bound to one another by a passionate commitment to music as a means of rapture, seduction, or liberation. Triana's grief is deep and almost boundless. Death has marked her, and taken her husband. Now only the music in her dreams can carry her from night to night. And now, into those dreams, into those nights, comes Stefan, the restless, tormented ghost of a Russian aristocrat. Stefan's musical genius will first enchant Triana, then dominate her so that she will be drawn into the cruel past in which he lived his earthly life. Finally Triana will find herself in the realm of ghosts and spectres where an ally awaits her. Surreal, dramatic and mesmerising, Violin moves across time and continents to bring together three lost souls bound to one another through music, passion and rapture.
