Read full description of the books Le variazioni del dolore:

«Io sono molte cose. Sono un musicista, un uomo, un padre, uno stronzo, un bugiardo e un impostore. Soprattutto, sono una persona che vive nella vergogna».

James si fidava di quell'uomo gentile. Perché non avrebbe dovuto? Era il suo maestro delle elementari. In principio fu una scatola di fiammiferi. Un meraviglioso oggetto del desiderio, per un bambino di sei anni. Poi seguirono altri piccoli doni. Insieme a sorrisi, incoraggiamenti, attenzioni. Lui ne era lusingato, e cominciò a sentirsi un po' speciale. Gli abusi durarono quattro anni, senza che nessuno, né a scuola, né in famiglia, si rendesse conto di nulla. Quando terminarono, per James fu un progressivo sprofondare nell'abisso: relazioni distorte e distruttive, ospedali psichiatrici, alcol. Fino all'incontro con la musica classica, con Bach in particolare, e alla scoperta di come le composizioni più sublimi siano state scritte da uomini che hanno avuto esistenze drammatiche e destini tragici.

Read information about the author

Ebook Le variazioni del dolore read Online! James Rhodes is a British classical pianist.

Born into a middle-class Jewish family in St John's Wood, North London, he was educated at Arnold House School, a local all-boys independent preparatory school, where he was sexually abused by a teacher.

Aged seven, Rhodes became interested in classical music and began learning the piano. He entered the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, but failed to make it past the second round.
In 1993, he was offered a scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. But due to mental health issues and his father's insistence, Rhodes took a psychology degree at University College, London. On graduation, Rhodes took a job in the City of London, married, had a son and later divorced.

In 2008 he took up the piano again, and the next couple of years saw his profile go from complete unknown to rising star, attracting celebrity fans such as Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch and Sir David Tang. Having performed in non-traditional classical venues, Rhodes built on this performance approach, and became the first core classical pianist to be signed with the world's largest rock label Warner Bros. He also had articles published in UK newspapers The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph.

In 2014-2015, Rhodes' memoir, Instrumental was the subject of a court case, in which his ex-wife attempted to place an injunction on the book, on the grounds it would cause distress to their son. The Supreme Court lifted the injunction so the memoir could be published in May 2015.
