Back cover :
This novel describes the last months of a young, prodigy composer of the nineteenth century, Julius Reubke. He was a preeminently romantic personality, a brilliant pupil of Liszt, precociously torn away from a promising career. He left behind him very few works, including a monumental sonata for organ.
The novel enables the imagination to fill up the gaps of history and tries to retrace the circumstances surrounding the origin of that extraordinary sonata.
Book in French
The organ sonata by Julius Reubke mentionned in this novel has been recorded on a CD by Nicole du Marchie v.V.
