A Musical Offering
Luis Sagasti, Fionn Petch
Publisher: Charco Press
Paperback / Softback
A lyrical celebration of storytelling, of childhood, and of the transformative power of music.
Tracing a circular course that echoes Bach’s Goldberg Variations , Luis Sagasti’s second book to appear in English takes the guise of a musical scheherazade, recounting story after story, vibrating to celestial harmonies. From the music born of the sun to the music sent into space on the Voyager mission, from Rothko to rock music, from the composers of the concentration camps to a weeping room for Argentinian conscripts in the Falklands, A Musical Offering traverses the shifting sands of fiction and history.
