Publisher's Summary

Alexander Feldmann is a revered and sought-after performer whose prodigious talent, striking good looks, and worldly charm prove irresistible to all who hear and encounter him. After years of searching, he acquires a glorious cello, the Silver Swan, a rare Stradivarius masterpiece long lost to the world of music.

Mariana is Alexander's only child, and the maestro has large ambitions for her. By the age of 19, she emerges as a star cellist in her own right and is seen as the inheritor of her father's genius. There are whispers that her career might well outpace his. Mariana believes the Silver Swan will one day be hers, until a stunning secret from her father's past entwines her fate and that of the Silver Swan in ways she could never have imagined.

    "That Cello!"

    This was an enjoyable listen. I liked Ms. Delbanco's story, and I was fascinated by the narrator who did so many accents. It was fun to travel with these professional musicians all around the world from the comfort of my home. And the plot has some fun twists and turns. I couldn't believe the last piece of the puzzle (no spoilers), but WHAT!????

    Overall, a laid-back, enjoyable listen.

    "The Silver Swan"

    This intriguing tale of secrets, passions, and music surrounding the ownership of a priceless Stradivarius was made particularly enjoyable due to the quality and clarity of the narrator’s voice and accents - French, Swiss, German - to name a few! (I especially liked the father's voice.) Well done, Ms. Cobb!

    "Loved the reader"
    Where does The Silver Swan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best yet!


    What does Amanda Leigh Cobb bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Amanda really brings the characters to life. There is so much in the way she expresses each emotion that I never would have picked up on or even considered just reading the book myself. Great job, really engaging and enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    Checkout some of Amanda's other work, it's all phenomenal.
