Summary "One of the first successful novels written by a female author in Romania, Hortensia Papadat-Bengescu's A Bach Concert remains a classic work of Romanian literature. The main plot revolves around a Bach concert organized by Elena Hallipa-Draganescu for the elite society of Bucharest. It is a captivating tale of high society intrigue, family tragedy, and urban life and culture in Eastern Europe in the aftermath of the First World War. Published for the first time in English, A Bach Concert will delight readers with stories of society in interwar Romania. Hortensia Papadat-Bengescu was born in 1876 in Galati, Romania. She started publishing stories in literary magazines and, in 1919, she published her first novel. A Bach Concert is considered her greatest work. The translator, Gabi Reigh, won the Stephen Spender Prize for poetry translation in 2017. She has translated interwar novels, poetry, and drama by Lucian Blaga, Liviu Rebreanu, and Mihail Sebastian, including The Town with Acacia Trees, which received a PEN Translation Award. The book is illustrated by Olga Rogozenco, a talented young artist from the Republic of Moldova"-- Provided by publisher.
