5つ星のうち 5.0 Fascinating Mix of Mystery and Biography 2009/8/27
投稿者 Dr. Jean D. Fielden - (
Simon Boswell's second novel, The Elgar Enigmas, is a highly sophisticated romp through the romantic interests and musical masterpieces of Sir Edward Elgar, not exactly a household name in the U.S. but he is the composer of "Pomp and Circumstance," the traditional triumphant march played at every person's graduation ceremony in America. Many surreal happenings occur, ranging from cell phones that "talk" while turned off, to musical masterpieces that seemingly compose themselves in the style of Elgar. Boswell's depictions of parts of Elgar's life and musical accomplishments are based on extensive research and the composer truly comes to life as he leaps off the pages of this book. Even those who don't believe in the supernatural will enjoy the very involved interplay between past and present, real and surreal, music and life. The ending is a masterpiece of connecting the dots and tying up all the loose ends.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Gripping Mystery 2009/10/17
投稿者 Dr. W. Shropshire Jr. - (
This delightful and entertaining novel demonstrates Simon Boswell's skills as an author of engrossing stories. The unusual heroine of this musical mystery is an autistic musical savant who authentically plays on the piano any piece she has heard. Her family and friends are challenged in their attempts to discover how she is able even to produce an unknown original composition of the famed British composer, Elgar. Boswell in a series of flashbacks brings to bear his encyclopedic knowledge of Elgar, parapsychology, musical composition and musical criticism. One of the leading characters is a stuffy British symphony conductor who provides the occult and musical themes that both inform and delight. The mystery unfolds at a rapid pace and once again demonstrates Boswell's ability to provide an entertaining and believable suspenseful plot which ends with all the loose ends connected and a completely satisfying denouement. This novel surpasses by far his equally well-done first novel, The Seven Symphonies, and makes us look forward with anticipation to his next novel. I am sure any reader will spread the word to friends and colleagues interested in music about this finely crafted novel. It's superb.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The same drama without the blood 2009/5/10
投稿者 Kris Karron - (
Those who could not put down Boswell's first novel, THE SEVEN SYMPHONIES, are in for a equally convoluted unpredictable plot in his second novel, this one without violence and with an even more engrossing mystery. As an American, I know that graduating to "Pomp and Circumstance" means remembering that Elgar composition forever. I was delighted to learn in this novel how intriguing Elgar was--a man ahead of his age, who adored tricks and puzzles, even flirted with the occult. Boswell not only enlightens us in regard to music and musicians and to practitioners of the occult and of music technology. In the pleasant English countryside he lets us meet a young autistic savant. At her piano, without speaking a word, she changes many entangled lives and challenges everyone's pre-conceptions, especially the reader's.

I can only hope there are more stories on the way from this wonderful writer, 7 Symphonies was also fantastic!!! I hope he does more set in Finland!! A page turner, a very good read!
