Summary Effervescent as champagne, Jilly Cooper's novel brings back old favourites like Rupert and Taggie Campbell-Black. Abigail Rosen, nicknamed Appassionata, was the sexiest, most flamboyant violinist in classical music, but she was also the loneliest and the most exploited girl in the world. When a dramatic suicide attempt destroyed her violin career, she set her sights 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, rolls up with Machiavellian plans of his own. "Delicious: light as a souffle and with divine flashes of wit. I could not put the…thing down." SUNDAY EXPRESS, "Appassionata - the divine Jilly Cooper's latest and greatest novel." THE SUNDAY TIMES, "Triumphant... a boisterous tale of sex and Chopin amongst Rutshire folk." TATLER, "Sexy, dazzling protagonists... the humour comes thick and fast." DAILY EXPRESS
