This brilliant novel with universal resonance tells the story of three people trying to survive in a city rife with the extreme fear of desperate times, and of the sorrowing cellist who plays undaunted in their midst. One day a shell lands in a bread line and kills twenty-two people as the cellist watches from a window in his flat. He vows to sit in the hollow where the mortar fell and play Albinoni’s Adagio once a day for each of the twenty-two victims. The Adagio had been re-created from a fragment after the only extant score was firebombed in the Dresden Music Library, but the fact that it had been rebuilt by a different composer into something new and worthwhile gives the cellist hope. Meanwhile, Kenan steels himself for his weekly walk through the dangerous streets to collect water for his family on the other side of town, and Dragan, a man Kenan doesn’t know, tries to make his way towards the source of the free meal he knows is waiting. Both men are almost paralyzed with fear, uncertain when the next shot will land on the bridges or streets they must cross, unwilling to talk to their old friends of what life was once like before divisions were unleashed on their city. Then there is “Arrow,” the pseudonymous name of a gifted female sniper, who is asked to protect the cellist from a hidden shooter who is out to kill him as he plays his memorial to the victims. In this beautiful and unforgettable novel, Steven Galloway has taken an extraordinary, imaginative leap to create a story that speaks powerfully to the dignity and generosity of the human spirit under extraordinary duress.

"After a history of some 450 years the cello--thanks to the achievement of virtuosi such as Casals, Piatigorski, Feuermann and Rostropovitch--now enjoys a greater musical prestige than ever before. That this is so is borne out both by the increasing number of concerts at which the cello today appears either in consort or as a solo instrument, and also by the proliferation of important works which twentieth-century composers have written for it. ... [For] this book, Professor Cowling has in mind a

ABSTRACT: In the late eighteenth century the violoncello began its ascent toward acceptance as a solo, virtuosic instrument equal to the violin. Much of this ascent was due to the tradition of cellist-composers: virtuoso performers who composed works for the cello that served to showcase the versatility of the instrument. These cellist-composers built a repertoire for the instrument, and without their influence, modern cello performance and pedagogy would not be the same. However, these great artists are mostly forgotten because
