The Violinist Book Review:

THE VIOLINIST counterpoises the universe of childhood on a background of the Jewish Holocaust in Romania. It tells the story of Calmo (LicÄ), whose family is banned from Bucharest due to their Jewishness, as he bears witness to a world that has lost its humanity during the Second World War. In it he falls in love with a pianist, a Jewish girl named LuÅ£a; he also recounts how his own artistry playing the violin charms both enemies and friends, Romanians, Germans, and Jews. LicÄ's violin is today transformed into the author's pen, remastering these early experiences with maturity, yet somehow maintaining a tragic innocence. With its cinematographic narrative that blends humor with tragedy and love with music, THE VIOLINIST easily reminds one of Roberto Benigni's LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL and Roman Polanski's THE PIANIST.

The Violin Conspiracy Book Review:

GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK! • Ray McMillian is a Black classical musician on the rise—undeterred by the pressure and prejudice of the classical music world—when a shocking theft sends him on a desperate quest to recover his great-great-grandfather’s heirloom violin on the eve of the most prestigious musical competition in the world. “I loved The Violin Conspiracy for exactly the same reasons I loved The Queen’s Gambit: a surprising, beautifully rendered underdog hero I cared about deeply and a fascinating, cutthroat world I knew nothing about—in this case, classical music.” —Chris Bohjalian, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Flight Attendant and Hour of the Witch Growing up Black in rural North Carolina, Ray McMillian’s life is already mapped out. But Ray has a gift and a dream—he’s determined to become a world-class professional violinist, and nothing will stand in his way. Not his mother, who wants him to stop making such a racket; not the fact that he can’t afford a violin suitable to his talents; not even the racism inherent in the world of classical music. When he discovers that his beat-up, family fiddle is actually a priceless Stradivarius, all his dreams suddenly seem within reach, and together, Ray and his violin take the world by storm. But on the eve of the renowned and cutthroat Tchaikovsky Competition—the Olympics of classical music—the violin is stolen, a ransom note for five million dollars left in its place. Without it, Ray feels like he's lost a piece of himself. As the competition approaches, Ray must not only reclaim his precious violin, but prove to himself—and the world—that no matter the outcome, there has always been a truly great musician within him.

The Violinist of Venice Book Review:

Like most 18th century Venetians, Adriana d'Amato adores music—except her strict merchant father has forbidden her to cultivate her gift for the violin. But she refuses to let that stop her from living her dreams and begins sneaking out of her family's palazzo under the cover of night to take violin lessons from virtuoso violinist and composer Antonio Vivaldi. However, what begins as secret lessons swiftly evolves into a passionate, consuming love affair. Adriana's father is intent on seeing her married to a wealthy, prominent member of Venice's patrician class—and a handsome, charming suitor, whom she knows she could love, only complicates matters—but Vivaldi is a priest, making their relationship forbidden in the eyes of the Church and of society. They both know their affair will end upon Adriana's marriage, but she cannot anticipate the events that will force Vivaldi to choose between her and his music. The repercussions of his choice—and of Adriana's own choices—will haunt both of their lives in ways they never imagined. Spanning more than 30 years of Adriana's life, Alyssa Palombo's The Violinist of Venice is a story of passion, music, ambition, and finding the strength to both fall in love and to carry on when it ends.

The Violinist s Thumb Book Review:

From New York Times bestselling author Sam Kean comes incredible stories of science, history, language, and music, as told by our own DNA. In The Disappearing Spoon, bestselling author Sam Kean unlocked the mysteries of the periodic table. In THE VIOLINIST'S THUMB, he explores the wonders of the magical building block of life: DNA. There are genes to explain crazy cat ladies, why other people have no fingerprints, and why some people survive nuclear bombs. Genes illuminate everything from JFK's bronze skin (it wasn't a tan) to Einstein's genius. They prove that Neanderthals and humans bred thousands of years more recently than any of us would feel comfortable thinking. They can even allow some people, because of the exceptional flexibility of their thumbs and fingers, to become truly singular violinists. Kean's vibrant storytelling once again makes science entertaining, explaining human history and whimsy while showing how DNA will influence our species' future.

The Violinist s Daughter Book Review:

The Violinist’s Daughter is a look into a celebrated family that is both gifted and dysfunctional. It is also a portrayal of the complexities of sibling rivalry. Hannah and her older sister Eva grow up surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the glorious music of their father’s violin. Axel Henke, a violin virtuoso from Germany, is frustrated that the world has not recognized his talent. He is a harsh figure, and though he has two daughters, it is Hannah who is usually the target of his aggression. Eva, the beautiful older sister mostly escapes her father’s tirades when as a young child it is discovered that she has inherited his musical ability and becomes his protégé. Hannah, the self-described plain sister, has no musical talent and is forced to be the audience to her father and Eva’s increasingly seductive relationship. Though Eva is gifted she is a difficult child, erratic and volatile, and her increasing attachment to her father, and his envy of her growing fame as a violinist intensifies her emotional instability. Their mother, Axel’s former violin student, is emotionally detached from her daughters and not able to deal with Eva’s behavior or to stand up to her husband who governs the household. Eva’s fame as a violinist grows while Hannah leaves home to study nursing in New York and marries a charismatic but cruelly manipulative psychiatrist. Shortly thereafter she must return home to care for her ill mother and tend to her father’s failing eyesight. A series of events occur, including Eva giving birth to a child she is incapable of caring for, a marital betrayal, and a shocking revelation that threatens Hannah’s place in the family. Through these challenges, Hannah begins to understand her father’s disdain, forgives her mother’s emotional distance, and sets boundaries on her sister’s behavior. She demonstrates powers of resilience which are transformative for herself as well as for Eva, and finally, as fate intervenes, Hannah meets someone who changes her life forever.

The Violinist of Auschwitz Book Review:

Auschwitz, 1943: In the depths of hell, can hope rise? And can love triumph over hatred? Based on the unforgettable true story of Alma Rosé, The Violinist of Auschwitz brings to life one of history's most fearless, inspiring and courageous heroines. Alma's bravery saved countless lives, bringing hope to those who had forgotten its meaning... In Auschwitz, every day is a fight for survival. Alma is inmate 50381, the number tattooed on her skin in pale blue ink. She is cooped up with thousands of others, torn from loved ones, trapped in a maze of barbed wire. Every day people disappear, never to be seen again. This tragic reality couldn't be further from Alma's previous life. An esteemed violinist, her performances left her audiences spellbound. But when the Nazis descend on Europe, none of that can save her... When the head of the women's camp appoints Alma as the conductor of the orchestra, performing for prisoners trudging to work as well as the highest-ranking Nazis, Alma refuses: "they can kill me but they won't make me play". Yet she soon realizes the power this position offers: she can provide starving girls with extra rations and save many from the clutches of death. This is how Alma meets Miklos, a talented pianist. Surrounded by despair, they find happiness in joint rehearsals, secret notes, and concerts they give side by side--all the while praying that this will one day end. But in Auschwitz, the very air is tainted with loss, and tragedy is the only certainty... In such a hopeless place, can their love survive? This devastatingly heartbreaking yet beautifully hopeful tale proves that even in the darkest of days, love can prevail--and give you something to live for. Fans of The Choice, The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The Orphan Train will lose their hearts to this magnificent tale. Readers absolutely love The Violinist of Auschwitz "Wow... Just wow. The world of historical fiction once again introduces us to a hero amidst the backdrop of evil. Heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, heroic are all words to describe The Violinist of Auschwitz."

Itzhak Book Review:

This picture-book biography of violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman will inspire young readers to follow the melody within themselves A 2021 Schneider Family Book Award Young Children Honor Book Before becoming one of the greatest violinists of all time, Itzhak Perlman was simply a boy who loved music. Raised by a poor immigrant family in a tiny Tel Aviv apartment, baby Itzhak was transformed by the sounds from his family’s kitchen radio—graceful classical symphonies, lively klezmer tunes, and soulful cantorial chants. The rich melodies and vibrant rhythms spoke to him like magic, filling his mind with vivid rainbows of color. After begging his parents for an instrument, Itzhak threw his heart and soul into playing the violin. Despite enormous obstacles—including a near-fatal bout of polio that left him crippled for life—Itzhak persevered, honing his extraordinary gift. When he performed on the Ed Sullivan Show sat only 13, audiences around the world were mesmerized by the warmth, joy, and passion in every note. Gorgeously illustrated with extensive back matter, this picture-book biography recounts Itzhak’s childhood journey—from a boy with a dream to an internationally acclaimed violin virtuoso.
