When he is compelled to feel to anarchist Barcelona, his education in mucis, life, and politics begins. But it isn't until he arrives at the court of the embattles monarchy in Madrid that passion enters the composition. As Feliu embarks on affairs, friendships, and rivalries, the tensions propelling Spain and the larger world toward catastrophe crescendo and critical choices must be made."The Spanish Bow" is a haunting fugue of music, politics, and passion set against half a century of Spanish history, form the tail end of the nineteenth century up through the Spanish Civil War and World War II.

Summary: PRAISE FOR THE SPANISH BOW"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 Romano-Lax makes an impressive and richly atmospheric debut."The New York Times Book Review.
