The Lost Song of Paris: words and music with Sarah Steele and Adam Heron
interviewed by Dave Harris
In conjunction with the Yellow-Lighted Bookshop we introduce you to Sarah’s latest WW2 novel The Lost Song of Paris. As well as outlining MI6 operations in Paris and the agent shuttle service provided by a secret RAF squadron, this story of a concert pianist operating in occupied France draws on Sarah’s own experience of training as a musician.
Former Gloucestershire Young Musician of the Year Adam Heron will perform works featured in the novel, including Chopin and Beethoven, as well as repertoire from his current recital programme.
Sarah Steele is the author of USA Today bestseller THE MISSING PIECES OF NANCY MOON, THE SCHOOLTEACHER OF SAINT-MICHEL and THE LOST SONG OF PARIS.
After training in London as a classical pianist and violinist, Sarah joined the world of publishing as an editorial assistant at Hodder and Stoughton. She was for many years a freelance editor, and now lives in the vibrant Gloucestershire town of Stroud.
A rising star of the UK classical music scene, Adam Heron came to the attention of audiences and promoters alike with his critically acclaimed performance as a BBC Young Musician piano finalist in 2018. Though only in his early twenties Adam has performed in 15 countries and is in demand as a recitalist, chamber musician, and as guest soloist with leading orchestras.
