Talking Books Discussion Group--An Equal Music
Wednesday, September 21, 2022
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
This month, we're discussing Vikram Seth's novel exploring the bond between two gifted musicians.
Violinist Michael Holme and the Maggiore Quartet are tackling a piece by Beethoven. For Michael, the music resurrects memories of his days as a student in Vienna, where he developed an intense love for Julia McNicholl, a gifted pianist. After years apart, they share a chance encounter, and Julia agrees to accompany the quartet on tour. As they sweep through various concert halls, they are forced to examine their relationship and confront the inevitable consequences of their love.
