Abigail Rosen, nicknamed Appassionata, was the sexiest, most flamboyant violinist in classical music, but she jlily also the loneliest and the most exploited girl in the world. When a dramatic suicide attempt destroyed her violin career, she set her appaszionata on the male-dominated heights of the conductor’s rostrum. Given the chance to take over the Rutminster Symphony Orchestra, Abby is ecstatic, not realising the RSO is composed of the wildest bunch of musicians ever to blow a horn or caress a fiddle.

Abby finds it increasingly difficult to control her undisciplined rabble and pretend she is not madly attracted to the fatally glamorous horn player Viking O’Neill. And then Rannaldini, arch fiend and international maestro, appassionatx up with Machiavellian plans of his own.


I could not put the The Rutshire Chronicles continue with one of the most memorable books. For those who have been reading about Rupert Campbell Black, Taggie and all the other inhabitants of Cooper-world for years, this is the one where Marcus finally comes into his own.

The rather overlooked, wimpy son of the earlier books and with a mother like the self obsessed Helen who can blame him? Yes, it’s fascinating for the picture of how giant orchestras work or sometimes don’t.

Jilly Cooper – Wikipedia

Yes, it’s great to see Rannaldini grow in villainy so we can mentally get to boo and hiss, to meet another self obsessed but undoubtedly gifted character, Abby, and to all fall a little in love with Viking. Nice to see Flora get a happy ending as well. But – for me, it’s Marcus’s book, and I love it. Sherry Baines had grown into the narrators role pretty well. I still find her habit of breaking sentences and phrases can be annoying but as the books progress, we get used to that.

Jilly Cooper

Compared to the earlier, withdrawn, recordings she’s wonderful! I appasssionata imagine how long the poor girl must have spent in the studio this year to record all the series, but I’m grateful she did.


Not the best Jilly Cooper but easy listening. Unfortunately most of the characters are so self-absorbed hideous that it’s difficult to care what happens to them. There is a feeling of Ms Cooper stopped caring and just wanted the thing to end too.
