Synopsis

Christopher Alt is the best piano maker is Vienna. His piano keys have given life to melodies by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. On his deathbed, moved by the wish to keep his children united, he leaves a will specifying that his descendants must live together in the family home. There are seething passions and icy relations, a world war and the rise of Nazism to contend with. Three generations of Alts live and die in the house, witnessing a Europe at the zenith of its splendour and the nadir of its devastation.

About the Publisher

Europa Editions

Europa Editions

Europa Editions is an independent publisher of literary fiction, non-fiction, and high-end crime fiction based in New York and London. The company was founded in 2005 by Sandro Ferri and Sandra Ozzola Ferri, who are also the owners and publishers of the Italian press, Edizioni E/O. The idea behind the creation of Europa Editions was to capitalize on Edizioni E/O’s deep roots in European publishing to bring fresh voices to the American and British markets and to provide quality English editions of international literature that had a distinct look and consistently high level of editorial standards. The Europa catalog is eclectic, reflecting the founders’ belief that dialogue between nations and cultures is of vital importance and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain and fascinate, but also to inform and enlighten.
