When Swan Lake Comes To Sarajevo

Full Product Description

How the power of music can heal a ravaged country.

War is always with us, and so is peace.

This is about the peace that comes after a war.

Ruth Waterman is an internationally acclaimed concert violinist, BBC broadcaster and lecturer.

Waterman first met the musicians from the Mostar Sinfonietta in 2002, and since then has returned regularly to the region, teaching, conducting and performing, and listening to their stories.

Here she describes the nuts and bolts of daily life - in turn frustrating, hilarious and touching: the putting together of concerts despite the odds; the rebuilding of bridges, towns, communities, lives; and how making music can connect us to our essential humanity and to each other.

Humane and down-to-earth, perceptive and inspiring, this is a touching and tenderly observed memoir featuring first hand accounts from survivors of the Bosnian war.

When Swan Lake Comes To Sarajevo by Ruth Waterman was published by Canterbury Press in April 2008. The ISBN for When Swan Lake Comes To Sarajevo is 9781853118654.
