9780099504238: Spanish Bow

When Feliu Delargo is born, late-nineteenth-century Spain is a nation slipping from international power and struggling with its own fractured identity, caught between the chaos of post-empire and impending Civil War. Feliu's troubled childhood and rise to fame lead him into a thorny partnership with an even more famous and eccentric figure, the piano prodigy Justo Al-Cerraz. The two musicians' divergent artistic goals and political inclinations threaten to divide them as Spain plunges into Civil War. But as Civil War turns to World War, shared love for their trio partner -- an Italian violinist named Aviva -- forces them into their final and most dangerous collaboration.

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by Harcourt, 2007, 978-0-15-101542-9/0-15-101524-2

From the Back Cover:

A haunting fugue of music, politics, and passion set against half a century of Spanish history, through the Spanish Civil War and World War II

In a dusty, turn-of-the-century Catalan village, young Feliu Delargo receives the unexpected gift of a cello bow, setting himon the unlikely courseof becoming a musician. Hisextraordinaryjourney leads himto anarchist Barcelona and the court of the embattled monarchy in Madrid, where he meetsAviva, a beautiful violinist with a haunted past. Meanwhile, forces gather that will propel the world to a catastrophic crescendo, testing the strength of Feliu's friendships, rivalries, and loves.

"Expertly woven throughout the book are cameo appearances by Pablo Picasso, Adolf Hitler, Francisco Franco, Bertolt Brecht, and others, but it is the fictional Feliu, Justo, and Aviva who will keep you mesmerized to the last page."--Christian Science Monitor

"Ambition, imagination, and luck are equal components of art and, this book seems to suggest, of political life. By choosing the bow, his father's accidental gift, Feliu opens a 'world of tastes and sensations' far more enduring than the toy of the moment, and Rmano-Lax makes an impressive and richly atmospheric debut." The New York Times Book Review
