Paul Cassidy & Jacqueline Thomas present an insight into their books, a trilogy of hugely entertaining memoirs, recounting the fascinating fifty-year history of the Brodsky Quartet,

"I'm not sure someone who plays the cello so beautifully should also be able to write so well. It just seems unfair."
Andrew Ford, Composer, writer, Broadcaster ABC

"A wildly funny, searingly honest, beautifully told memoir."
Sara Mohr-Pietsch, Broadcaster BBC, writer, curator.

Readers' comments on "Get Beethoven!":

Candid, funny, inspiring... A brilliant read, had me in stitches.

I was in tears one minute and laughing out loud the next.

COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!! It's like a juicier, more complex Billy Elliot!

 Just buy it and thank me later.
