Music and Freedom by Zoë Morrison

Resurrection being the concept underpinning Music and Freedom, fittingly the performance of Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto – which marked the composer's return from a four-year bout of depression – is the structural core of this powerful first novel. The concerto's ominous opening chords, aching second movement, and confident yet unsettled finale reverberate through Zoë Morrison's narrative as she explores the complexities of life, love, music, and memory.
