Editorial Reviews

Review

From Literary Fiction Book Review:

Bravura, like the theme of the novelitself, is a musical symphony in which Lisa Kirazian is the accomplished conductor. Kirazian deftly chronicles the interweaving lives of sixstudents at the Royal School of Music in London: Maggie, the headstrong American diva-in-the-making with her powerful operatic voice; her brash suitor Neil, a talented pianist who harbors the repressed anger of anabused child; his sister Kate, the fragile violinist who takes the world by storm; Kate's appealing beau Colin, a flautist recently bereft offamily and enamored with the graceful Kate. These four are augmented bythe fastidious Anne and the lovelorn Jeremy. Against the backdrop ofcampus life, the pressures of endless practice and skill-mastery, loomsthe final recital in which each student is judged and their career isjump-started, or it is not. This small group ofmusicians, united by friendship and family, come together and draw apart through the years that follow, consumed with the labors of theircalling, exhausted with travel obligations, grappling with loss, wracked by grief, and struggling to nourish the love that first brought themtogether. Bravura is a novel that richly depicts the power andpassion inherent in great musical works and the tremendous dedicationand sacrifice demanded from those who answer its call. Kirazian has produced a work that will appealnot only to readers of literary fiction, but to music-lovers everywhere.

Verdict: a novel that richly depicts the passion and power of music.
