Music and Silence by Rose Tremain
In 1625 a young English lutenist joins the Royal Orchestra of King Christian IV of Denmark. Music, sex, passion and conflicting loyalties combine in a book described by Steven Poole in the Guardian as ‘joyously noisy’ and by John Julius Norwich as ‘the best thing from Denmark since Hamlet.’ Rose Tremain, one of our finest historical novelists, has an acute ear for the past, and for its uncanny resemblances to the present. Winner of the Whitbread Best Novel award in 1999, Music and Silence is one of her finest, funniest and most moving books, and might even inspire you to experiment with a sadly neglected musical instrument.
