Ghost Variations: The Strangest Detective Story in Music…

David Le Page (violin), Viv McLean (piano), Jessica Duchen (author/narrator)

In 1933 the violinist Jelly d’Arányi received a message via a Ouija board supposedly from the spirit of Schumann, asking her to find his long-suppressed Violin Concerto. Jessica Duchen’s novel Ghost Variations is based on the extraordinary real-life events that ensued...

David Le Page, the dynamic violin virtuoso and leader of the Orchestra of the Swan, and the award-winning pianist Viv McLean join the author to tell the story in a dazzling mix of narration and music by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Bartók, Ravel and Schumann.
