JESSICA DUCHEN author/narrator
BRADLEY CRESWICK violin
MARGARET FINGERHUT piano
Celebrated classical music writer Jessica Duchen presents her internationally acclaimed novel Hungarian Dances as a narrated concert with soloists Bradley Creswick and Margaret Fingerhut. It tells the tale of a Gypsy girl who becomes a famous classical violinist, but at a terrible personal price. The story travels through 90 years of Hungarian history from 1919 to 2009, and along the way explores the rich crosscurrents between Gypsy violin playing and classical traditions.
