The Prague Sonata by Bradford Morrow
Music and war are the twin motifs around which Bradford Morrow, recipient of the Academy Award in Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, has composed his opus, a novel more than a dozen years in the making.
In the early days of the new millennium, pages of a worn and weathered original sonata manuscript–the gift of a Czech immigrant living out her final days in Queens– come into the hands of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist whose concert piano career was cut short by an injury. Meta sets out on an unforgettable search to locate the remaining movements of the sonata and uncover a story that has influenced the course of many lives. The Prague Sonata is both epic and intimate, evoking the ways in which individual notes of love and sacrifice become part of the celebratory symphony of life.
Fred Cohen will lead the discussion. The Zoom number will arrive before the meeting.
