"The Beautiful Cassandra and other early writings" - newly released by Crimson Cats audio
This very special collection of light-hearted, humorous stories written by a teenaged Jane Austen is charmingly presented, brilliantly read and performed by Teresa Gallagher, and expertly produced. Ms. Gallagher is a familiar voice to listeners of BBC radio drama. Her list of credits for audio work is extensive and includes an audio book reading of the biography of Jane Austen. Among Gallagher's film credits is The King's Speech, for which Colin Firth won an Oscar. Most notable is the musical accompaniment to this audio book. Pianist Peter White plays music derived solely from music books owned by Jane Austen. Adding to the authenticity of the audio experience is the fact that all of the music is played on a Clementi square piano identical to the one played by Jane herself. What a delight! Available on CD or via download. Visit www.crimsoncats.co.uk to hear two clips from the book.
