In 1926 in pre-Israel Palestine, a concert given in a stone quarry by celebrated violinist Jascha Heifetz drew thousands - but no one witnessed the legendary conversation he had afterwards with a charismatic young composer and kibbutz pioneer named Yehuda Sharett. On Yehuda Sharett's journey to become a founding father of Israeli culture, two remarkable encounters changed his life: one, finding his identity in an ideological match with Heifetz; the other, twenty years later, regaining it after personal and national tragedy with the help of his brother, future prime minister of Israel Moshe Sharett. Soaring music echoes not only the harmonies and discords of one man's life, but also those of a state struggling into being, in this inspiring play by award-winning journalist James Inverne.
