            Lev's Violin: An Italian Adventure
             

            Lev's Violin: An Italian Adventure (Hardback)

            • Reprinting locally

            When Helena Attlee hears the captivating sound of Lev's violin - an Italian instrument, she is told, named after its former Russian owner - she is instantly entranced, eager to discover all that she can about its ancestry, and the stories contained within its delicate wooden body.... Soon, she sets out for its birthplace, Cremona - once the hometown of famed luthier Antonio Stradivari - and begins a beguiling journey whose end she could never have anticipated. Making its way from the cobbled streets of sixteenth-century Cremona, through cool churches, glittering courts, and little coastal opera houses, Lev's Violin takes us from the heart of Italian culture to its very furthest reaches. Its tale of princes and orphans, virtuosos and fraudsters, collectors, composers, travellers and raconteurs, swells to an enrapturing meditation on the power of objects, stories and music to shape individual lives and craft entire cultures.
