The Schumann Violin Concerto

The strangest detective story in the history of music - inspired by a true incident.

On November 8 we perform Schumann’s Violin Concerto with violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja. In this podcast, novelist and classical music writer Jessica Duchen talks about her novel, Ghost Variations, which tells the bizarre story of how the violin concerto was rediscovered after being left unknown and unheard for over 80 years.
