About this book
A profoundly moving story of music, survival, friendship and love in wartime Leningrad, which was New Zealand's bestselling adult fiction title of 2011. As Nazi troops surround the city in 1941, the Party orders Karl Eliasberg to conduct a performance of Shostakovich's 7th Symphony - a haunting, defiant new piece which will be relayed by loudspeakers to the front lines. Eliasberg drives his starving musicians on, but at what cost? 'Extraordinary... a symphony on the power of love - the love of music, home, family, city... A triumph on every level' "New Zealand"
