Caterina Pellegrini, a young Venetian musicologist, is hired to find the rightful heir to a treasure concealed by a once-famous, now almost forgotten composer. Sworn to secrecy, and determined to uncover the truth alone, Caterina is led down paths that are darker and more mysterious than she could have imagined, paths that lead straight to the heart of one of the most scandalous affairs of the baroque era.

Very nice! A Donna Leon's book that is not Comissario Brunetti - so it is novelty for me! Lots of history and classical music, which are not my strong area at all, but still interesting and captivating book - I would love to read more about Caterina Pellegrini!

Sending to Annelis, who loves Venice, next!

Wow, Chania, so many books! Thank you very much!
Lots of history and classical music are not my strong area either, but I love to read about them.

This is a nice book, even if I was a bit disappointed at first of its not being a Brunetti story.
I met many familiar Italian things which I have read at Italian Book Club. Last winter we read a book called Stabat Mater. It was about an orphanage and some of its inhabitants in the 1700s. The orphans sang at church and Antonio Vivaldi came to teach them. Vivaldi is one of many composers who has composed music Stabat Mater.
Agostino Steffani's Stabat Mater can be found on YouTube (among many others).
There was a program on TV about castrati who sang like angels. The last castrato, Alessandro Moreschi, died in 1922.

This is my book #60 in the Reduce Mount TBR 2018 -challence by Dove-i-libri.
