Description

All my life my Stradivarius had been waiting for me, as I had been waiting for her . . .' Imagine losing the one thing you live for. How do you survive? Can you carry on? What comes next? At twenty-one, violinist prodigy Min Kym found the one - a 1696 Stradivarius. At last she had found her true voice. Together they toured the world, playing to rapt audiences. But in 2010 Min's violin was stolen at a train station - and suddenly her world collapsed. Unable to play, with little hope of ever finding the instrument that was now an extension of herself, she could see no future. Yet Min knew that the music was still inside her - if only she could rediscover what she had lost, she might just find herself . . .

Author Biography

South Korean born and raised in the UK, Min Kym began playing the violin at the age of six. At seven she was accepted as the youngest ever pupil at the Purcell School of Music; at 16 she was the youngest ever foundation scholar at the Royal College of Music. The legendary conductor George Solti said she had 'exceptional natural talent, mature musicality and mastery of the violin'. In 2010 she recorded the Brahms Violin Concerto with Sir Andrew Davis and the Philharmonia Orchestra. She was the first ever recipient of the Heifetz Prize, and is a goodwill ambassador for the city of Seoul.
