Jana. Brit. Daniel. Henry.
They would never have been friends if they hadn't needed each
other. They would never have found each other except for the art which
drew them together. They would never have become family without their
love for the music, for each other.
Brit is the second
violinist, a beautiful and quiet orphan; on the viola is Henry, a
prodigy who's always had it easy; the cellist is Daniel, the oldest
and an angry skeptic who sleeps around; and on first violin is Jana,
their flinty, resilient leader. Together, they are the Van Ness
Quartet. After the group's youthful, rocky start, they experience
devastating failure and wild success, heartbreak and marriage, triumph
and loss, betrayal and enduring loyalty.
They are always tied to each other - by career, by the intensity
of their art, by the secrets they carry, by choosing each other over
and over again.
Following these four unforgettable characters,
Aja Gabel's debut novel gives a riveting look into the high-stakes,
cutthroat world of musicians, and of lives made in concert. The story
of Brit and Henry and Daniel and Jana, The Ensemble i> is
a heart-skipping portrait of ambition, friendship, and the tenderness
