Continental Riff: ‘A witty and irreverent musical romp’ – Claire King
A continental tour of Europe doesn’t go quite as planned!
When Stockwell Park Orchestra goes on tour to Europe, it proves a challenge for even the most efficient German logistical planner.
A teenage stowaway, brass players falling in canals and a sabotaged timpani van are all in a day’s work for Ingrid Bauer of Note Perfect Tours, but even she can’t solve all the problems this week throws at her. Maybe a bit of surprise Bach can calm the muddy Brexit waters.
She just has to fish out the musicians first.
Praise for The Stockwell Park Orchestra Series:
“I was charmed… a very enjoyable read.” Marian Keyes
“Friendly insults between musicians, sacrosanct coffee-and-biscuit breaks, tedious committee meetings: welcome to the world of the amateur orchestra.” BBC Music Magazine
“…a witty and irreverent musical romp, full of characters I’d love to go for a pint with. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Stockwell Park Orchestra and can’t wait for the next book in the series.” Claire King, author of The Night Rainbow
“Sharp, witty and richly entertaining.” Lev Parikian, author of Why Do Birds Suddenly Disappear?
“With its retro humour bordering on farce, this novel offers an escape into the turbulent (and bonkers) world of the orchestra.” Isabel Costello, author of Paris Mon Amour
“…a very funny tale of musical shenanigans set in the febrile atmosphere of the Stockwell Park Orchestra” Ian Critchley
