Remember, what's down inside you, all covered up the things of your soul. The important, secret things . . . The story of you, all buried, let the music caress it out into the open. When Allegra was a little girl, she thought she would pick up her violin and it would sing for her that the music was hidden inside her instrument. Now that Allegra is twelve, she believes the music is in her fingers, and the summer after seventh grade she has to teach them well. She's the youngest contestant in the Ernest Bloch Young Musicians' Competition. She kws she will learn the tes to the concerto, but what she doesn't realize is she'll also learn how to close the gap between herself and Mozart to find the real music inside her heart. The Mozart Season includes an interview with author Virginia Euwer Wolff.
