Literary Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

In this gentle and melancholy romance, a British concert violinist rekindles an affair with the love of his life, a beautiful (and married) pianist who is going deaf. Alan Bates sounds a bit too old for the musician-narrator but otherwise gives this fine abridgment just the right note of piquancy. Judiciously placed musical interpolations augment the atmosphere of classical passion. Y.R. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
